Interacting with the Director Administration and Strategy of the Media House, Prince Ufeh Tor Biliji Tor, he wondered why the criminals who invaded the office would leave out items which 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 with sensitive documents of the organization including receipts and Bank Documents.

“We are surprised by this devopment because If they were really 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 hand work of some desperate elements who do not wish the organization well.
