Nigeria News – Before Us Is A Full-blown Dictatorship & I Warned – Fayose

Ayodele Fayose, the former governor of Ekiti State has reacted, on Sunday, to the raid of Daily Trust Maiduguri, Borno State regional office by armed soldiers.

After arresting two (2) editorial staff, the soldiers shut the gate of the Maiduguri regional office.

Soldiers also invaded the newspaper’s head office in FCT, Abuja and its Lagos bureau office, few hours after shutting down the Maiduguri regional office.

On Monday morning, in a statement, the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Usman revealed that the operatives were at Daily Trust offices, over its lead story on Sunday Trust publication, to invite the staff of the company. The story, according to the Director “divulged classified military information, thus undermining national security”.

The former governor, while reacting, wrote on his Twitter Page, condemned the steps of the soldiers.

Mr Ayodele Fayose remembered how he warned Nigerians before the 2015 presidential election about voting for Buhari.

The former governor Twitted: “Before us is a full-blown dictatorship & I warned! Now in a democracy, Army invaded @daily_trust office, took its staff away! Ain’t we back to Buhari’s tyranny of 1984 when under Decree 4, journalists must not report information considered embarrassing to govt?”
