Nigerian Guild Of Editors Reject Military’s Excuse For Seizing Consignment Of Newspapers.

The Nigerian Guild of Editors has said that it is scandalized and shocked by the conduct of security agents, particularly the military which laid siege to the roads round the country and seized consignments of newspapers meant to be sold to the general public.

The crackdown, according to the guild lasted throughout the morning hours, causing huge economic losses to the publishing houses.

The body of senior journalists rejected the explanation of the military that the raid was occasioned by a certain security report it got.

The Nigerian Guild of Editors said the media do not bear arms, rather it bears information which sheds light on darkness no matter how seemingly impenetrable the darkness is.
