Theodore Chinonso Uba, popularly known as NonsoNkwa, on Tuesday morning raised an alarm that security agents have surrounded his house in Owerri, Imo State.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Uba is the head of Igbo Department, Osiza 96.1 FM Owerri.

News had since gone viral on Sunday that the National Broadcasting Commision (NBC) shut down the radio station on the Imo State government’s alleged order for reporting the facts of the July 17 killing of 14 wedding guests in Awomama in Oru East Local Government Area of the state by the Ebubeagu Security operatives.

But the radio station, in a statement issued in Owerri, said that the station was “temporarily suspended” and not shut down.

On Tuesday morning, Uba took to his Facebook page to say he is being targeted, although he would later provide an update that the security operatives have left.

“Security forces have surrounded my house as I write…My life is in danger!” his post read.

According to him, “reliable information has it that there was a chopper waiting to whisk me to Abuja somewhere in Owerri.”

He vowed ‘not to bow to any intimidation from any corner’.
