Nigerian journalist Haruna Mohammed Salisu threatened over report on alleged fraud
Nigerian authorities should thoroughly investigate the threatening message received by journalist Haruna Mohammed Salisu and ensure his safety, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today.
On March 13, at about 9 a.m., Salisu, owner and reporter at the privately-owned WikkiTimes news website, found a note slipped under his office door in the city of Bauchi, the capital of Nigeria’s northern Bauchi state, the journalist told CPJ in a phone interview.
The note, a copy of which CPJ reviewed, referenced a report Salisu had published in January, and a civil suit that a local hospital filed against him over that report.
