Journalists were also reported by NAN to have been denied entry to the VIP area, Work Station and Mixed Zone.

According to reports, a Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) journalist had his camera smashed by the bouncers and a reporter from the Punch Newspaper was also manhandled.

The journalists also complained about the accreditation tag which does not contain a lot of areas filled in their accreditation forms.

However, it was reported, at the time of publishing this report, that the organisers who did not provide a mixed zone, were yet to resolve the issue.
