NAWOJ FCT chapter urges thorough investigation of vanguard’s Tordue Salem’s death

The Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ), FCT Chapter, has called for a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a late journalist, Mr. Tordue Salem.

A communiqué issued on Sunday and jointly signed by The Chairperson Mrs. Anna Daniela and Secretary Mrs. Nkiru Nnoli-Okeke, raised the alarm over the security challenges facing the country while condemning, in strong terms, the death of Salem.

The association called on the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Baba, to order a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of the late journalist.

NAWOJ also queried the manner in which the Vanguard Newspaper, late Tordue’s employers, hurriedly broke the news of his death noting that this is without considering the psychological effect it will have on family members of the deceased, who were not given prior notice of their son’s death.

The Chairperson Comrade Annah Daniel said the association also decried the rate of inflation in the country, especially the hike in the prices of foodstuffs and other essential commodities, including cooking gas, charcoal, and kerosene.

The NAWOJ chairperson, lamenting the hardship being experienced by women and children due to inflation, called on the Federal Government to urgently intervene to check it.

Comrade Daniel condemned the killing of the three soldiers, including a General, in Askira Uba in Borno, allegedly by the Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP) She, however, encouraged security agencies to do in tackling the issues of insecurity.
