Media torched, reporters attacked in major threat to press freedom in Nigeria

first_img News News NigeriaAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImpunityFreedom of expressionViolence News Help by sharing this information During yesterday’s “#EndSARS” protests in Lagos, the commercial capital, part of the TVC News channel’s studios and several of its cars were set ablaze, while gunmen on motorcycles invaded the headquarters of The Nation, one of the most popular privately-owned newspapers, and set fire to its facade. Both of these media outlets are linked to Bola Tinubu, a former Lagos State governor who is a national leader of the All Progressive Congress, Nigeria’s ruling party. According to the information obtained by RSF, at least three other broadcast media – Channels Television, Africa Independent Television and Ray Power Radio – were forced to suspend broadcasting after similar attacks in Lagos and Benin City.Many journalists have also been physically attacked, either by violent protesters or police officers, since the start of these major protests, in which dozens of people have been killed. On 11 October, Daily Trust reporter Gimba Kakanda was roughed up inside a police station in Abuja, the capital, after being arrested. He said the police punctured the tyres of his car, threw his phone to the ground and threatened to kill him. RSF has so far registered 12 attacks against journalists since the start of these protests.“The grave violence against Nigerian journalists and media outlets makes us fear the worst,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “The authorities must not wait until journalists covering the protests join the list of victims. We ask them to put an end to the violence against reporters and to guarantee their safety when they are targeted. It is unacceptable that Nigeria continues, year after year, to be one of the only West African countries where journalists risk their lives when covering major demonstrations.”Two journalists, Alex Ogbu and Precious Owolabi, were killed by live rounds while covering protests in Abuja in January 2020 and July 2019 respectively. Those responsible have never been identified.Nigeria is ranked 115th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.  January 28, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Nigeria June 10, 2021 Find out more Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria Nigerian investigative journalist forced to flee after massacre disclosures Newscenter_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is very concerned about the physical attacks against Nigerian journalists and media in connection with the continuing protests against President Muhammadu Buhari and against violence by the SARS police unit, and calls on the authorities to put a stop to the attacks and guarantee the safety of media personnel. to go further RSF_en October 22, 2020 Media torched, reporters attacked in major threat to press freedom in Nigeria NigeriaAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImpunityFreedom of expressionViolence Receive email alerts Nigerian news site deliberately blocked, expert report confirms February 8, 2021 Find out more Kola Sulaimon / AFP Organisation last_img read more

New homes orders recover after Brexit

first_imgHome » News » Land & New Homes » New homes orders recover after Brexit previous nextLand & New HomesNew homes orders recover after BrexitBuyers return to market as Post-brexit worries subsideNigel Lewis4th October 20160685 Views The post-Brexit rise new in new homes orders has been so strong it’s helped the construction sector return to growth despite a decline in commercial non-residential  work.Latest figures reveal that the new homes sector has bounced back after four months of declining orders with many buyers reporting increased confidence in the economy as Brexit fears subside.This has led house builders to revise their outlook for business and homes construction and many now have the most optimism in the future since May, just before the Brexit vote. Some 45% of builders surveyed said their output would rise this year while only 9% said it would reduce.The research, which is carried out regularly by Markit/The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS), says that the increase in housing activity was the strongest recorded since January, with a number of builders citing “resilient demand for residential building work and generally improving market conditions”.“A number of survey respondents noted that Brexit-related anxiety has receded among clients, although it remained a factor behind the ongoing decline in commercial building work,” says Tim Moore, Senior Economist at IHS Markit and author of the report (pictured, left).But David Noble, Group Chief Executive of the CIPS, believes the construction sector isn’t out of the woods yet, saying that the “continuing pressures of input prices resulting from the weaker pound and the lingering uncertainty of the Brexit process” were still a factor.   IHS Markit new homes Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply CIPS PMI Tim Moore October 4, 2016Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
