A German Radio reporter, Musa Ubale, was on Monday barred from covering State House activities after questioning the Chadian President, Idris Derby, on the whereabouts of Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.
He also asked the visiting Chad leader if he knows of any link between the troops of the Multi-national Task Force and mercenaries from South Africa.
Ubale had asked the two questions when the Chadian President, in the presence of President Goodluck Jonathan, was fielding questions from journalists after their closed door meeting.
The Federal Government was unhappy with the questions and ordered the immediate withdrawal of Ubale’s State House accreditation tag.
He was escorted out of the Presidential Villa by security officials after picking his belongings from the press centre.
With the withdrawal of the tag, Ubale can no longer have access to the Presidential Villa to do his job unless his accreditation card is restored.
