ABSTRACT: The research investigated newspapers’ framing of Biafra Agitation under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration with a content analysis of the Leadership newspaper, Daily Trust newspaper, the Punch newspaper, and Daily Sun Newspaper respectfully. The research was supported by the Media Framing Theory and Agenda Setting Theory which are twin brother theories. Content analysis was adopted, coding sheet, 9 content categories including the 10 frames under the framing category were used to elicit data from the manifest contents. Also, 142 stories were analyzed from the selected papers which was analyzed using frequency and percentage method and the data were presented with the aid of tables. Findings shows that the Southern newspapers has more stories related to Biafra agitation for secession more than it was found in the Northern newspapers. Framed stories on Biafra agitation were given prominence within that period as many of the stories were not only illustrated but also used colour photo coupled with reasonable proportion of space were given in the newspapers to cover Biafra Agitation because it was a serious issue threatening the national unity. It was recommended that mass media and online news platforms should shun politics while dealing with issue of national interest and be conscious in the content since the ‘medium is the message’ to prevent collapse of national interest.
