As attacks on journalists across the country persist, Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Rivers State Council, has raised alarm over an unsuccessful assassination attempt on the life of one of its members, Mr. Segun Owolabi.
The NUJ, in a statement signed by the State Chairman, Stanley Job Stanley and Secretary, Ike Wigodo, urged the security agents in the state to ensure that the assassination attempt on Owolabi is thoroughly investigated and the culprits brought to book.
Owolabi who is the Business Manager of Silverbird, Rythym 93.7 FM Station, allegedly escaped attacks on Monday night, when a group of people suspected to be murderers stormed his house in Port Harcourt.
The union expressed worry over the resurgence of insecurity in the state and called on the
relevant security agencies to be proactive towards tackling the menace.
The statement further urged the state government and security agencies to work closely to secure the lives of citizens living and doing business in the state.
It read in part, “The resurgence of insecurity in the state is worrisome. We are concerned about the security of our members and other citizens living and doing business in the state.
“The government and the police should work closely and be more proactive towards tackling the insecurity situation in the state.
Rivers state NUJ also called on other members of the union to join in solidarity move towards ensuring the safety of journalists across the country.
