Local or Foreign:

Adamu, the Abuja correspondent of African Concord magazine, was arrested by three security agents at his Abuja residence. The agents did not give a reason for the arrest, but informed Adamu that he was being “invited for a chat.” Friends believed Adamu’s arrest was in connection with the July 14 African Concord cover story titled “Ali Mustapha: Ruthless Man Behind Abacha.”
In a letter to Gen. Sani Abacha, CPJ called for Adamu’s immediate and unconditional release.
