In a another incident, a journalist with New Telegraph Newspapers in Onitsha was, Monday evening attacked by robbers, but managed to escape.

Reporters gathered that the journalist, while on his way home from work, had a flat tyre on 33 Housing Estate Road and was busy changing it when the robbers swooped on him, thinking he had money.

The frustration of not getting money from him was said to have infuriated the hoodlums who beat him up.
