Breaking! Protesters Set The Nation Newspapers Head Office Ablaze

By Oluwatomisin Amokeoja

Protesters on Wednesday set ablaze the head office of The Nation Newspapers at Matori in Lagos.

This follows the attack on the head office of Television Continental (TVC).

NPO Reports was able to reach an Associate Editor of the print medium who confirmed the incident via a telephone call.

The Associate Editor who spoke on condition of anonymity stated that he was in the office and there was no cause for alarm.

A video which has gone viral showed the gate of the head office ajar with what looks like a van consumed by fire very close to the main entrance of the building.

Youths suspected to have launched the attack were also seen filming the incident while some were audibly heard calling for closure of the gate to ensure the whole facility is consumed by the inferno.

Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is believed to be the main target of the attacks.
