The Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, has condemned the gruesome murder of a Nigeria Television Authority, NTA staff, Chukwu Obiahu in Okene, Kogi State.

 

Our Kogi State Correspondent, reports that Late Obiahu, was stoned to death on Tuesday evening by unknown assailants shortly after he closed from work.

 

Briefing journalist at a press conference on Thursday, Kogi State NUJ chairman, Comrade Momohjimoh Adeiza called on security agencies to unravel the circumstances behind the death the late NTA engineer.

 

He described the late engineer as a gentle man whose life was caught shot by this men of the under world.

 

While commiserating with the NTA family over the irreplaceable loss, the NUJ chairman observed that it has become very difficult for many Nigeria to go about their legitimate businesses. 

 

Speaking further, Adeiza said, "A young man who went to work to do his legitimate duty was killed on his way home. It is so sad, very unfortunate. At this juncture, I will want to call the Nigeria police, to do everything possible to unravel the circumstances behind the death of that young man.

 

"It is becoming increasingly difficult for people to do their legitimate business anywhere in Nigeria today. From the available information, he was a staff of NTA who closed at the end of the day he was going back home and was later killed. I want to commiserate with the family, of the deceased and the entire NTA all over the country over the unfortunate incident".

 

Continuing, the chairman stated that, "Like I said, Government should please do something to protect every Nigerians and the media broadcast inclusive. If the deceased had been provided with adequate cover, I believe what happened should not have happened. 

 

"What we have heard is that he was closing late, and he was going home unprotected. No vehicle. If somebody must be closing from work at that ungodly hour of the night, something should be done for him to go home safely. I want to call on media owners to provide vehicles to convey their staffs to their various destinations to avert future occurrence of this ugly incident."
