JUST IN: ARMED NIGERIA SOLDIERS INVADES DAILY TRUST MAIDUGURI OFFICE

Armed officers of the Nigerian Army have invaded the Daily Trust regional office in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.


The soldiers stormed the premises on Sunday and arrested the regional editor, Mr Uthman Abubakar and a reporter, Ibrahim Sawab.

According to the newspaper, it was not clear why the soldiers took such action, but says it may be connected to the lead story on Sunday which focused on military operations in the North-East.

They also reported that the soldiers shut the gate of the Maiduguri regional office, after arresting the two editorial staff on sight. 

An eye witness said that the soldiers had also requested to see Daily Trust’s Political Editor, Hamza Idris.
