Breaking: Biafra Times Publisher reportedly arrested in Lagos, interrogation ongoing


The Nigeria Police has reportedly arrested 'Biafra Times' publisher in Lagos, Nigeria and had copies of the newspapers numbering 515 which it describes as ''offensive' seized.

The operation took place in Shomolu area of Lagos according the information released by the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Mr Fatai Owoseni.

In a statement, he said, “The printing press has been shut and the environment is being monitored.

“This is an offence punishable under the Criminal Law of Lagos State,” Owoseni said.

Speaking to journalists, the publisher said he has been grossly misconstrued adding that he has no intention to promote disunity and disharmony among Nigerians.

His words, “I love my country and I love my president. My intention is not to fight my country; I just want to pass out information to those who have no access to the Internet.

“I usually go on the Internet to source for information and publish. I have other papers on sports and social life which I publish,’’

“I decided to specialise on Biafra Times when I discovered it is always a sell-out anytime we published stories about eastern parts of the country.

“Sometimes, I go to newspaper vendors and hear people requesting for Biafra Times.

“We usually print about 5000 copies which we sell for N100 nationwide,” he said.
