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.

It is still unclear why they took the action but it may be connected with the lead story of the newspaper on Sunday on military operation in the North East.

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.
