Building contractor operating under the trade name, Pro-Dev, Mr. Femi Omoniyi has gone underground.
Sources attribute this development to threats from dreaded militant group, Boko Haram.
Informants disclosed Mr. Omoniyi was engaged for some construction at University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital ( UMTH), Borno State.
He was on site to commence the project when his problem started.
Insiders claim he was warned by some unknown individuals to stop work and leave, but provided with more security- he didn’t take the warning seriously.
‘Then they disrupted his work, destroyed his equipments and left another message that for disobeying their warnings to stop work, he has become a marked man and they will hunt him down and make him suffer’ a source claim.
He was said have gone in search of materials to add to those on site at the time of the attack.
Co-workers at the place credited the attack and message to the feared insurgent group Boko Haram.
A jittery Omoniyi is said to have gone underground since then.
Unconfirmed sources claim he fled to neighbouring country, Chad.
