The soldiers – one in uniform carrying assault rifle (AK 47) and two others in plainclothes handcuffed Omirin and dragged in into a waiting Ford Focus light blue car.

“We are from 7 Div; we are taking him there,” they said, as they drove off from the Press Centre at about 4:40 pm.

His colleagues at the Daily Trust Regional office in Maiduguri twice in the day requested to see Omirin, claiming they wanted to do a change of name.
