Emergency Meeting: NUJ 7th Triennial Delegates Conference To Hold In Umuahia – NEC

The Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ says the incessant arrest and detention of journalists in their line of duties by security personnel will no longer be condoned.

This call, amongst several others, is part of resolutions of the union’s National Executive Committee, NEC which held its quarterly meeting in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.

National Secretary of the Union, Achike Chude, in a communiqué listing the resolutions, the NUJ urged that such actions by security personnel should be stopped forthwith.

The meeting presided over by the NUJ President, Chris Isiguzo, also cautioned politicians to refrain from attacking journalists on essential duties during the upcoming governorship elections in ondo and Edo states.

The NUJ frowned at the lingering state of insecurity across the nation, especially kidnapping and violent crimes in the South-East, insurgency in the North-East, and banditry in the North-West.
