The Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force (TTDF) has denied media reports that soldiers rushed onto the compound of Guardian Media Limited (GML).
A release from the TTDF said CCTV footage made available to their Investigations Unit revealed that the soldiers did not enter the GML building but remained in the car park for a short time, before leaving.
It added they are not on the hunt for anyone.
Yesterday police and sniffer dogs were called in after someone called the media house and said that there was a bomb in the building.
The newspaper reported that soldiers were in search of Dillon Skeete whom they alleged soldiers claimed could help solve the murder of Lance Corporal Kayode Thomas.
He was in the building for an interview with a reporter.
Reports in yesterday’s paper claimed a senior officer contacted its editor and said someone they were looking for was in the building.
It reported that previous to Skeete’s arrival at the building a series of incidents took place including soldiers entering the building and inquiring where the driver of a red Mazda motor car was.
The bomb threat was made after Skeete had left.
No suspicious items were recovered from the building.
