Gunmen have raided the office of THISDAY located at Utako district in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The newspaper said the gunmen stormed the office at about 3am on Thursday.
The armed men reportedly came in through the back fence of the company’s premises.
Security men on duty said the criminals subjected everyone including the production staff to “inhumane treatments” for 45 minutes before leaving.
The gunmen whose mission was unclear reportedly told the staff that they would be back again “in the days ahead”.
The management of THISDAY said it has since reported the incident to the police division in Utako district.
The attack is coming about 10 years after suicide bombers attacked the newspaper’s offices in the FCT and Kaduna state, killing 11 people.
The attacks happened almost simultaneously.
