Soldiers raid Daily Trust Borno office; arrest editor, reporter

Armed soldiers on Sunday invaded Daily Trust regional office in Maiduguri, Borno state and arrested the regional editor, Uthman Abubakar and a reporter, Ibrahim Sawab.

Daily Trust reports that the soldiers shut the gate of its Maiduguri regional office, after arresting the two editorial staff on sight at the time of the raid.

A witness also disclosed that the soldiers requested to see Daily Trust’s Political Editor, Hamza Idris, whose byeline appeared on the story.
