Soldiers Shut Down Daily Trust Office In Borno, Arrest Journalists

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 not clear why they took the
action but it may be connected with the lead story of Daily Trust on
Sunday on military operation in the North East.

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