According to the newspaper, the gunmen stormed the office in the early hours of Thursday.

The intruders were said to have subjected the security guards and production staff to “inhumane treatments”, threatening to kill them if they made any attempt to alert the police.

Although the mission of the armed men, who arrived at the premises at about 3 am yesterday has yet to be ascertained, the gunmen who were said to be in the premises of the newspaper’s office for about 45 minutes, reportedly told the staff that they would be back again “in the days ahead”.

Reacting to the attack, the management of THISDAY said it has since reported the incident to the police division in Utako district.

The attack is coming about 10 years after suicide bombers attacked the newspaper’s offices in the FCT and Kaduna state, killing 11 people.
