WHY WE INVADED DAILY Trust OFFICES – NIGERIAN ARMY
The Nigerian Army says it invaded the offices of Daily Trust Newspapers offices in Maiduguri and Abuja, to invite the organisation’s journalists responsible for the publication of a classified military operation plans.
The army admitted invading the newspapers’ offices in a statement by its spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman.
Usman said: “The disclosure of classified security information amounts to a breach of national security and run contrary to Sections 1 and 2 of the Official Secrets Act.
“It afforded the Boko Haram terrorists prior notice of our plans and giving them early warning to prepare against the Nigerian military, thus sabotaging the planned operations and putting the lives of troops in imminent and clear danger.’’
He further explained that the invitation was done with the best of intention to make the reporters realise the import of such acts to national security.
The army spokesman urged journalists not worry about the action “but engage in their responsive reportage and be professional as the army has no intention of muzzling the press or jeopardising press freedom.’’
“We, however, wish to enjoin further that they should eschew jeopardising national security in their reportage.
“We would not tolerate situation where a publication would consistently side with terrorists and undermine our national institutions.’’
Usman appealed to the media to join hands with the military and other security forces to end terrorism and insurgency in the country.
@korexx81 Akorede my military buddy told me a lot about how their fight with the boko haram is going on, how lives are lost, how his friends drop dead right in his presence when hit by a bullet. This touching story is not the kind of story you want to be in but trust me someone has to do the job, someone has to be a militant, someone has to fight against terrorism, someone has to be a hero. The Military men are doing a lot than the eyes meet.
I dedicate this piece to all the military men, the fallen soldiers, the fighting soldiers and the wounded soldiers, you're all appreciated.
God Bless You all
