Christian Purefoy Leaves CNN

Christian Purefoy, CNN's West Africa correspondent, has left the network. He announced his departure from CNN a few days ago on his facebook page.

"Dear All, I have now moved on from CNN - I'd like to thank everyone for the support over the last seven years! But this is not the end...

... this is an extremely important year for Nigeria and I'll be returning in the New Year with a BIG project (but no Naija wife yet!)"

Purefoy joined CNN in 2005 and initially worked as a producer, editor and cameraman. He was appointed to correspondent in 2008 and reported on various news and feature stories from his base in Lagos, Nigeria.

Vladimir Duthiers, AC360 production assistant and CNN journalist, is currently reporting from Nigeria for CNN.
