ABSTRACT
This study examines the coverage of the 2010-2011 Jos crisis in the largely under-studied Nigerian press. Using the dynamic framing perspective, this study focuses on how three influential newspapers portrayed the crisis during its four-month lifespan. Findings suggest that an event with multiple action points will produce different frame-changing patterns compared to an event with a single point of action. The findings are also discussed with reference to the unique media landscape in Nigeria.
