JUST-IN: Police, SSS Reportedly Mount Siege Outside AIT As Station Reopens

An official of AIT has disclosed that the Police and the DSS reportedly mounted siege outside its station just after it reopened following a court order. 

The group managing director, Tony Akiotu who disclosed that the Police and the DSS mounted siege outside AIT station in Abuja as at 12.30 a.m. this morning, said they came "heavily fortified and carrying out surveillance on the premises." He further described the surveillance as "unusual" and its motive "unclear", but added that the station will not be deterred by outside forces.

"The station is still transmitting signals on its national and global beam," Mr Akiotu said, adding that the police and SSS' action was an "unwarranted threat" to the station. This is coming after senior lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, asked the government to promptly comply with a Federal High Court's order on the reopening of the media house.
