Three media houses, This day newspaper, The Sun and The Mirror were attacked by the boko haram sect recently. The hardest hit was This day Office in Jabi Abuja which was almost brought down by the impact of the bomb. Five people have been reported dead as a result of the bombing.
In an interview with a blog, premiumtimesng.com the sect claimed that their targets are mainly Nigerian and foreign journalist. One of the boko haram spokesman identified as Abul Qaqa says the attack was meant to send strong messages to the media houses as the sect (boko haram) are fed up with press misintepretations and accusing them of attacks they know nothing about.
