Violence and threats against journalists are a frequently occurring phenomenon in Nigeria. To help counter this, the Premium Times Centre for Investigative Journalism (PTCIJ) developed the Press Attack Tracker with the support of Free Press Unlimited. The platform was launched in an effort to document and publicize these incidents. PTCIJ verifies reports that are submitted and conducts stories and investigations on the incidents to bring justice to the victims and convictions of perpetrators. Users can report incidents through sms, twitter and through the website. The platform can be accessed on any Android or Iphone device.
