NUJ urges decisive action in locating “missing” journalist

The Nigeria Union of Journalists ( NUJ ) FCT Council, has tasked security agencies in Abuja, to be decisive in locating Mr Tordue Salem, a journalist. 

Salem, who works with Vanguard Newspapers and covers the House of Representatives, has not been seen or reached since Wednesday, October 13.

The NUJ FCT in a statement on Sunday tasked the police and DSS to unravel the mystery surrounding Mr. Salem’s whereabouts. 

It says”For all 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 NUJ officials called fellow journalists to remain hopeful, prayerful and offer any leads that could prove useful in resolving the impasse.
