Suspected hoodlums have set ablaze the head office of The Nation Newspaper at Matori in Lagos on fire.
The development comes hours after the head office of Television Continental (TVC) was torched.
Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is believed to be the main target of the attacks.
Three staff members of the paper confirmed the development to PREMIUM TIMES.
A reporter with the newspaper who spoke with our correspondent said “our office is on fire now but LASEMA and police have been called for rescue.”
“Reporters and other staff have run for their lives. Some are also trapped,” the reporter said asking not to be named.
The office is located at Fatai Atere way, Mushin, Lagos
Earlier, Television Continental (TVC) was also set on fire by hoodlums. TVC is, like The Nation, believed to be owned by Mr Tinubu.
