Armed police officers on Wednesday laid siege to the offices of Sahara Reporters and CDHR in Ikeja, Lagos.
The siege is believed to be to prevent a protest from being held in the area.
A PREMIUM TIMES reporter at the scenes said the heavily-armed police officers prevented anyone from entering or leaving the offices.
The publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, has been in detention for several weeks for organising a protest against the federal government.
The government accuses him of terrorism and plotting to overthrow President Muhammadu Buhari.
CDHR (Committee for the Defence of Human Rights) is a prominent rights group in Nigeria.
