NUJ Kaduna Condemns Journalists’ Abduction

The Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Kaduna State Council, has strongly denounced the abduction of its members on Saturday at approximately 10:30 p.m. in the state.

On Sunday, the Council’s Chairman, Asma’u Halilu, and Secretary, Gambo Sanga, released a joint statement in Kaduna.

According to the statement, “The NUJ has heard with horror the bold and cruel attack by suspected kidnappers.

“The attack resulted in the abduction of the Kaduna State Correspondents of The Nation Newspaper and the BluePrint Newspaper, as well as their families, last night at their residences in Danhono, a Kaduna suburb in Chikun Local Government Area.

“We strongly condemn the ugly incident and appeal to the security agencies in the state to swing into action with a view to rescuing the journalists and their families from the kidnappers’ den.”

The statement expressed dismay over the sad abduction of the innocent journalists, as well as their wives and children.

It said, “We ask the government at all levels to increase measures to ensure the security of residents’ lives and property at all times.

“The heinous phenomena of kidnapping in Kaduna and its vicinity has resurfaced and must be addressed to avoid repeating recent events.

“The Kaduna State Council of NUJ, however, enjoined all practicing journalists in the state to be vigilant in their daily activities while also praying for the safe return of their abducted colleagues and their families.”
