Description

In Abuja, the soldiers forced the gate open and drove in with three Jokic vans loaded with armed soldiers. Everyone in the building was asked to move to the ground floor while the soldiers moved computers.

Hours after shutting down the Borno office of Daily Trust newspaper, officers of the Nigerian Army have invaded the newspaper's head office in Abuja.

During the invasion of its Borno office, the regional editor, Uthman Abubakar and a reporter, Ibrahim Sawab, were arrested.

In Abuja, the soldiers forced the gate open and drove in with three Jokic vans loaded with armed soldiers. Everyone in the building was asked to move to the ground floor while the soldiers moved computers.

It is not clear yet why they took the action but the newspaper states that it may be connected with its lead story on Sunday on military operation in the North-East.

Efforts by the newspaper to get the Nigerian Army's response on the invasions proved abortive as the military spokesman, Brigadier General Sani Usman, ignored calls to his line by Daily Trust.

Usman was later said to have sent a text message asking the newspaper to send its inquiry via text message. A text message was sent but the spokesman had not responded to the message at the time of the report.
