The national general secretary of the Association of Nigerian Aviation Professionals (ANAP), Comrade Abdulrasaq Saidu, said he has been receiving death threats through text messages in his phone.
Saidu said the death threat may not be unconnected with the recent agitation by ANAP on the condition of service for workers of the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET).
Briefing newsmen recently on the threat to his life at ANAP office in Ikeja, Saidu revealed that he got a call from a mobile phone number 08054969604 Tuesday morning at about 730 am while getting ready for work.
He however, explained that the due to poor network he could not get the voice of the person clearly adding that the person later sent text messages which reads as follow :”If you love yourself be careful if not the violent change you are planning will consume you and all your co travellers. Be warned.”
According to Saidu on getting the text message, he then responded as follow “Continue with your threat.Allah shall take control because Allah owns my life.”
Saidu said the person again responded thus: “You don’t know any Allah you hypocrite. Why didn’t pick my call. I am going to trace you out if you think you can threaten an organisation from where you feed every day, unjustifiable nemesis will catch up with you very soon.” According the ANAP scribe, he resorted to truecaller on his phone and the name that appeared was one Jigah of NiMET.
Saidu said he would never succumb to any blackmail from a coward in the pursuit of emancipation of injustice in the system, stressing that the union was only agitating for the welfare of those that were working for the overall development of the aviation industry and other sectors that relied on meteorological information for survival.
“I want to state categorically that i will not be deterred by any amount of threat or blackmail. I have notified the law enforcement agencies and other security operatives about the ugly development. The owner of the said GSM number should be held responsible for whatever happens to me and I am very convinced that he will be fished out by the security agents in no distant time.
