Press coverage? Who needs it?

The news media are being barred from the trial of two Nigerian Army major generals, according to this report. Excerpt:
The spokesman of Mogadishu Cantonment Abuja, Colonel Ali Yusuf, told journalists today that they were barred from the trial so as not jeopardise operations of the army. 
Yusuf, however, promised that the reporters would be briefed about the outcome of the cases later.
Global Military Justice Reform hereby awards the coveted George III to the Nigeria Army for this decision -- and the stated reason for it.
