Anagor, public affairs commentator, alleges threat messages after radio programme

A public affairs analyst and political commentator, Comrade Raymond Anagor, has
cried out over threats he claimed to have been receiving after his December 13 2017
interview he granted to a radio station in Lagos.
Anagor said he aired his opinion on social vices plaguing the country, especially
female genital mutilation, girl-child education, political corruption, human trafficking,
kidnapping and farmers/herdsmen conflicts.
“I was particularly accused in one of the threat text messages that I was an informant
of anti-human trafficking agencies and needed to either keep shut or risk being
eliminated or have my children trafficked. This was not the first time I would receive
such threat in the quest and advocacy to purge the country of social ills” he told
Sunday Vanguard.
“What made this difference is that the threat has become real. I narrowly escaped
being attacked by some people suspected to be assassins on my way from work in
early February 2018. While I am still in shock, a failed kidnap attempt on my children
at their school in Lagos happened on March 2.
“But for the security consciousness at the children’s school, the story could have been
different. I have reported the threats to my life and family to the authorities who
promised to give me protection but have yet to do so.’’
Anagor said he became an orphan at a young age and would not want his four
children to suffer same fate.
According to him, he might consider relocating from Nigeria with his family if the
threats continued.
