Nigeria military searches vehicles carrying papers, newsprint

Nigerian soldiers patrol in the north of Borno state close to a former camp run by Islamist extremist group Boko Haram near Maiduguri, northeast Nigeria on June 5, 2013Nigeria’s military on Friday said they had begun searching vehicles carrying newspapers and newsprint because of security concerns, denying the move was an effort to muzzle media critics. Defence spokesman Chris Olukolade said the search “followed intelligence report(s) indicating movement of materials with grave security implications across the country using the channel of newsprint-related consignments”. The country’s military has been under sustained pressure — including increasing media criticism — over its response to the Boko Haram insurgency in the country’s northeast, which has claimed thousands of lives since it began five years ago.
