Attack on media is an attack on democracy, Lai Mohamed speaks during commiserating media houses which were attacked 2 weeks ago by hoodlums.
The minister of information and culture visited two media organizations in Lagos belonging to former governor Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinunbu who own one of Nigeria’s newspapers The Nation and Television Continental(TVC). he said;
Therefore an attack on the nation or any media house is a direct attack on freedom of speech and also democracy and, honestly we belive there is no justification what so ever for the attack.
He appealed with the management and staff over the attack, saying it was a pre-determined attack to silence democracy.
