Abuja - Boko Haram on Thursday explained that its grouse with ThisDay over alleged misrepresentation of its position and perceived bias led to the bomb attacks on its offices in Abuja and Kaduna.
Suspected Boko Haram members bombed ThisDay’s Abuja office as well as a complex housing ThisDay, Sun and Moment newspapers in Kaduna, leaving a number of people dead and many more injured. The extremist sect, while claiming responsibility for Thursday's attacks, says more bombings are coming the way of the media
In an interview with Premium Times, Abul Qaqa, spokesperson for the sect, said that his organisation was fed up with the deliberate misinformation being peddled about it in the Nigerian and foreign media. He explained that the attacks was to send a strong message to the media that it would no longer condone reports misrepresenting it in the press, or blaming it for acts it knows nothing about.
