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, 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.

Abul Qaqa also said in an exclusive interview, that his organisation was fed up with the deliberate misinformation being peddled about it in the Nigerian and foreign media. according to him he said the offences committed by This day Newspaper was more compared to other news agencies.

The sect has warned the Nigerian media houses to expect more attacks as they claim to have just started the campaign! and cautioned reporters and media houses to be professional and objective in their reports.

      if the govt is not ready to fight corruption, why inttisute a probe in the first place. Again, if the probe was supposed to be a cover up as some would be quick to conclude, why make such an indicting report public. Nigerians, let’s not call a dog a bad name to kill it. What, I ask, is the purpose of occupy nigeria ii’ why act in haste, why not wait and see what the govt will do with the report? Why, I ask. Young people, tread with caution and wisdom and not the hot-headedness associated with youth. If it’s posterity we are fighting for, let’s not be brash about it. Nothing good comes out of being brash. P.S. I support the security agents for stopping protests A young nigerian woman, unrelated to anybody in govt and desirous to see the greatness of her nation!!! Long live GEJ, long live Nigeria
