Nigeria government launches attack against bloggers

The Nigerian government has just launched a “$5 million war” against bloggers and online news media such as Sahara Reporters [...] On the one hand this is good news as the Nigerian government wakes up to the power of citizens media and that we are watching and reproting on their every step. On the other hand this is very dangerous for bloggers in the country and those outside who may wish to return home whether for a short holiday, work or permanently.
