In what appears a throwback to #Nigeria’s dark days of military dictatorship, some soldiers who reportedly claimed they were acting on orders from above have confiscated today’s edition of #Leadership Newspaper heading to the Northwest, Southeast and Southsouth regions of the country, an official of the paper has said.

Azubike Ishiekwene, managing director of the Leadership Group, said soldiers mounting a roadblock close to the tollgate along the Abuja-Kaduna expressway blocked the newspaper’s van heading to Kaduna and confiscated the entire consignment of the paper.

The driver of the vehicle as well as another staff were also detained, with their telephones seized, Mr. #Ishiekwene said.

Another consignment of the paper being flown to states in the Southeast were also confiscated by authorities at the Abuja airport, the newspaper said.
