Resumen

Este estudio utilizó el análisis de contenido para analizar la cobertura periodística de los casos de secuestro en Nigeria en los periódicos Daily Trust y The Guardian desde agosto a octubre de 2020. Los objetivos de la investigación son examinar la frecuencia, la prominencia y la dirección para medir el alcance de los casos de secuestro por los periódicos seleccionados. Como marco teórico se utilizaron la teoría del ciclo de atención a la temática y la teoría del encuadre. El supuesto básico de la teoría del ciclo de atención a la temática es que los temas relacionados con el medio ambiente tienden a ser repentinamente más notorios, permaneciendo así durante un breve tiempo y luego se desvanecen gradualmente del centro de la atención pública, mientras que la teoría del encuadre de los medios de comunicación defiende que el encuadre individual implica la comprensión cognitiva del individuo en una situación determinada. El estudio reveló que los dos periódicos informaron más de los casos de secuestro en sus páginas interiores, con un 52,6% (Daily Trust) y un 46,8% (The Guardian).
