Solomon Musa, a Metro Times journalist residing in Anambra, was attacked by hoodlums in the Isu Aniocha Local Government Area.

Musa was attacked on February 5 while delivering a documentary video in the neighbourhood.

Musa described his incident by saying that hoodlums with weapons emerged from all angles and began firing in the air. One of them put a pistol to his head and started beating him up. One of the hoodlums took his phone, crushed it on the floor, and then took all of his media equipment.

As he pleaded with the gunmen not to kill him and informed them that he was in the region for a documentary, his vehicle was also vandalized.

His Mark Laptop Apple HP laptop, wristwatches, international passports, National ID card, car battery, Designer eyeglasses, Canon Camera 6D Mark II, Bank ATM cards, one thousand dollar bill, driver license, and other documents were confiscated by the gunmen.

The reporter was brought to the hospital for treatment after surviving the attack with minor injuries.

When the incident was reported to the Anambra State Police Command, the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Tochukwu Ikenga, told Metro Times that they were in command of the matter.

Meanwhile, when the area's Youth Chairman was called 48 hours after the incident, he facilitated and drove a Metro Times reporter to the hideaway of the unknown shooters to beg on his behalf.

Later on, he assisted him in recovering his Mark Laptop, Apple HP Laptop, HP Laptop, NOTE dropout computer tablet, Vivo Android phone, Students ID card, Bank ATM cards, and Business card.

Captain Philip Onibon of the Nigerian Army later assisted the Reporter in recovering his Toyota Corolla 2007 from the attack location.

As a result, Metro Times strongly condemned the calamitous violation of press freedom perpetrated by unknown gunmen against its reporter while he was performing his legal duties in Anambra State.
