Some criminal elements on Tuesday night broke into the office of the Publisher and Chief Executive Officer of the Magazine and carted away valuable items worth over a million naira including highly sensitive documents of the media house.

Some of the items carted away were an LG LED TV, 18 inches ORL standing fan, 1 HP Laptop, 1 Samsung Laptop, an LED Lantern, Extension wires, Bank Documents, and receipts alongside highly sensitive documents of the organization.

Interacting with the Director of Administration and Strategy of the Media House, Prince Ufeh Tor Biliji Tor wondered why the criminals who invaded the office would leave out items that would have fetched them hundreds of thousands but gave priority to sensitive materials of the organization.

“There were personal belongings worth over two hundred thousand naira belonging to the Editor in Chief but they did not pick any of them. Instead, they opened his drawer and carted away sensitive documents of the organization including receipts and Bank Documents.

“We are surprised by this development because If they were looking for things they intend to make money, there are business shops with valuables worth over billions within the premises but because it was not money they were after, they did not give attention to any of those areas.

Suspecting a link with the development, the Director of Administration said, the ugly development could be the handwork of some desperate elements who do not wish the organization well.

He, however, assured readers that the organization would continue to live by its known policy of developmental and investigative journalism.

Earlier, one of the Security Officers within the premises who did not want his name in print alleged that Security Officers within the premises are only attached to United Bank for Africa (UBA), Taraba State Investment and Properties Ltd, and Taraba State Savings and Loans Ltd. As such, they did not mind any other office within the premises including the block that accommodates Worldview Magazine.

Office premises

At the time of writing this report, the premises of the Worldview Magazine was busy with sympathizers mainly from neighbors within and outside the complex.

Meanwhile, the management of the organization had said that the incident had been reported to the Police for necessary action.
