<p class="">Atiku also called on President Buhari to ensure press freedom as the elections draw near.</p>

<h1>The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has condemned the invasion of Daily Trust offices in Abuja and Maiduguri by soldiers.</h1>

<p class="">According to <strong>Vanguard,</strong> Atiku, who described<a href="https://www.pulse.ng/news/local/soldiers-allegedly-invade-daily-trust-office-in-borno-arrest-workers/9zl5nf5" id="df59b912-f861-4705-8b22-e5898f806592"> the incident</a> as unacceptable, called on President Buhari to ensure press freedom as the elections draw near.</p>

<p class="">The PDP presidential candidate, in a statement signed by his media aide, <strong>Paul Ibe</strong> said soldiers should not be used to intimidate law abiding citizens.</p>

<p class="">The statement reads: <em>"We totally condemn these actions and call on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately call his forces to order and end their attack on the media and the freedom of the press. </em></p>

<p class=""><em>“This is a travesty, the likes of which we have not seen since the heinous days of military rule. Atiku Abubakar and other pro-democrats did not risk their lives fighting for democracy for this to happen. </em></p>

<p class=""><em>“This is unacceptable. The media is not only a partner in progress to the government, but they are also a quasi-arm of government being, as Edmund Burke propounded, the Fourth Estate of the Realm.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“The particular use of heavily armed soldiers also shows the abuse of scarce resources which has exacerbated the insecurity currently plaguing Nigeria.</em></p>

<p class=""><em> “Our soldiers should not be used to target law-abiding citizens. A dutiful and prudent Commander-in-Chief should rather deploy them to either the Northeast or the Zamfara-Katsina axis, especially after the governors of both states held New Year’s Day conferences bemoaning the breakdown of law and order in their respective states.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“if the government has issues with Media Trust Limited, it should bring charges against them at a court of competent jurisdiction or the Nigeria Press Council, the statutory body that governs ethical standards in the Nigerian press.”</em></p>

<p class="">Meanwhile, <a href="https://www.pulse.ng/news/local/army-says-it-invaded-daily-trust-for-sabotaging-war-against-boko-haram/1j0ge8v" id="a37114aa-9adc-40fa-90d6-d7fe49de62ae">the Nigerian Army,</a> in a statement, said that it raided Daily Trust offices because the daily disclosed classified military information to the public.</p>

<p class="">It also accused the media house for sabotaging its war against <strong>Boko Haram,</strong> through its publication.</p>
