IPC flays access denial of Guardian reporter to Buhari

By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos

A Lagos based media centre, the International Press Centre IPC has described as unwarranted and unhealthy for democracy, the denial of access to information and the call on the London Police to arrest a Guardian reporter who was making enquiries about the President of Nigeria.

“With visits by top government officials and leading politicians to the President at the London Abuja house, his stay there has become knowledge and of public interest” said the Director of IPC, Mr. Lanre Arogundade.

According to him, such public interest demands the establishment of an information unit or centre in London to respond to enquiries about the President.

The IPC Director said other means of responding to the Guardian reporter should have been explored instead of the attempt to get him arrested.
