Israel Akpodoro, leader of Niger Delta Coalition of Ex-Agitators, has voiced out the threats to his life saddled with supporting the Muhammadu Buhari prior to the 2015 presidential elections.

Akpodoro hinted that he never regretted the decision, but is now getting jittery after Buhari went ahead to win the election and has not looked towards his way.

Speaking on Sunday, the ex-militant said:
"Actually, there was no ex-militant leader that could mention Buhari at that time. But I know that 75 percent of the ex-agitators were not with Jonathan but everybody was afraid. They couldn’t say anything.

"I then decided that our voice must be heard. I now gathered the ex-militants, and endorsed Buhari. Immediately I did that, I started facing problems from people in the region. They withdrew my security. Kingsley Kuku called me, threatened me, different groups of people called me using unknown numbers.

"Actually, Buhari has not done anything for the ex-militants. But I’m still pushing. For now am a bad person in the region for supporting Buhari. The people that I used to support Buhari, the promise I gave them that immediately Buhari becomes president, he will empower them through me has not been fulfilled.

"Up till now we have not seen anything from Buhari. I have become a bad person to my followers. I have also become a bad person to the region because they are all PDP. They are calling me all sorts of names, I’m a betrayers, I’m a sellout, I have sold my life to Buhari but Buhari has not done anything for me."
