Security operatives have launched a man hunt for a yet to be identified young man seen in a viral video clutching a gun and threatening to kill supporters of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidates of All Progressives Congress, APC and the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in South east if they come out to vote in 2023.

The viral video in which he made the threat circulated on some social media platforms some weeks ago.

The young man, while displaying what looked like a locally made crude gun in the video, had warned supporters of the APC and PDP presidential candidates against coming out to vote if they “love their lives”.

He corked the gun to prove it was not a toy.

The young man then warned those who wouldn’t vote for Peter Obi to stay away from polling units.

“I go reach polling unit see men dey vote for Atiku or Tinubu. How far? Una go understand.

“If you know say you no go vote Peter Obi, no come out…no come out.

“Shebi you dey see am (I think you are seeing it). We dey vex!”, he threatened as he corked his gun again.

However, PR Nigeria, quoting an unnamed source, said the young man will soon be arrested over the violent threats.

“The young man, suspected to be an IPOB militant issued his ‘murder’ threat in a viral 30-second video which has been circulated on various social media platforms.

“It is quite disturbing and worrisome when the armed criminal vowed that come 2023, he will shoot and kill persons at polling units, who attempt to vote either Atiku or Tinubu,” the security source said.
