Lagos: The managing director and editor-in-chief of the Nigerian Compass daily newspaper has been shot during an attack in the country's southwest area.
The newspaper said in a statement that Sina Kawonise was shot in the leg in the attack Monday while traveling through Osun state.
The newspaper said a police officer traveling with him also was shot. Both survived.
Mohammed Garba, the president of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, said he was aware of the attack, but didn't believe it involved politics as others were violently robbed along the same highway at the same time.
