Samuel Ogundipe, a top Nigerian journalist in Abuja, has resigned from Premium Times.

His resignation seems to be related to the story he did about Bello El-Rufai, who threatened to gang rape someone’s aged mother.

El-Rufai’s son publicly threatened to deal with Samuel for writing the story, but Premium Times didn’t do anything about it.

Weeks later, he tweeted about a document from Dangote that he received and his editor, Musikilu Mojeed, came online to attack him and threatened to punish him.

Many people attacked Mojeed on social media for conducting himself unprofessionally.

Samuel resigned a few weeks later and made his decision known on Twitter today, September 16.

He has now started a new digital media outlet, Peoples Gazette, in Abuja.

If this could happen at Premium Times it shows how tough journalism is in Nigeria, you have enemy both in and out.
