Ahmad Salkida


I started work as a journalist in 2001 and reported for several media organizations, such as INSIDER Weekly, CRYSTAL magazine, Daily Trust and BLUEPRINT Newspaper, in Nigeria. I have also made editorial contributions to the Africa Renewal, a publication of the United Nations devoted to research and development issues in Africa.

My exclusive and predominant reports on Boko Haram now ISWAP lately in my career unsettled local authorities in the past, leading to my self-exile in 2013 from Nigeria, which also earned me grants from the Committee to Protect Journalist (CPJ), Reporters Without Borders for Press Freedom, (RSF), Rory Peck Trust and PEN International in 2012.
