Subsequently, Daily Trust reporter sent him a text message and WhatsApp message stating: “Sir, the regional office of Media Trust in Maiduguri was shut down by the military and the regional editor and staff reporters were arrested by the military and taken away to an unknown destination and the phones of two guards were seized, we want to know the offence committed that warrants the shutdown of the media house? We want to know where those arrested have been taken to because we fear for their well-being.”
