NUJ tasks security agencies on decisive action to find missing journalist

The Nigeria Union of Journalists, FCT Council, has charged security agencies in Abuja to take decisive action in order to locate a journalist, Mr. Tordue Salem, who went missing since last week.

A correspondent with the Vanguard Newspapers who covers the House of Reps, Salem has not been seen, heard from or reached since Wednesday, October 13.

The journalist, who is a native of Tiv, Benue State, and also an official of the Middle-Belt Journalists Forum, MBJF, was reportedly sighted in the evening on the day he was last seen, after which he seemed to have disappeared.

In a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja signed by Emmanuel Ogbeche and Ochiaka Ugwu, chairman and secretary, respectively, the NUJ urged the police and DSS to urgently unravel the mystery surrounding the whereabouts of its missing member.

“For all of us journalists in Abuja, we have been on edge these past few days over the mysterious disappearance of our colleague and friend, Mr. Tordue Salem.

“It is worrying that an adult will simply vanish into thin air without a trace. This is unacceptable and we urge the police and DSS to rise up to the occasion and provide answers to this troubling situation.

The journalists also called on their fellow members to “remain hopeful, prayerful and offer any leads that could prove useful in resolving the impasse.”
