The Rights and Accountability group, in a statement released few minutes ago, Tuesday August 25, asked Mr. Fani-Kayode to publicly apologise to the said Journalist, saying no one should call any Journalist "stupid" for doing their job.

 

 “We condemn reported intimidation, harassment and attack on @daily_trust journalist by a former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode.  Mr Fani-Kayode should publicly apologise to the journalist.

 

“No one should ever call any journalist "stupid" simply for doing their job

 

“Journalistic freedom also covers possible recourse to a degree of exaggeration, or even provocation. The media has a vital role to play as “public watchdog” in imparting information of serious public concern and should not be inhibited or intimidated from playing that role”, the statement emphasized.
