The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, has called on security agencies not to relent until the missing Vanguard Newspapers’ reporter, Mr. Tordue Salem, is found.
Salem, who covers the House for Vanguard Newspapers, had been missing for some weeks now.
He was last seen on October 13, 2021, between 8p.m. and 9p.m. at Garki Area II, Abuja.
Gbajabiamila stated this yesterday in Abuja while declaring open a capacity building workshop for the House Committee on Media, which was organised by Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Foundation.
He said: “The House and I had been in contact with the leadership of the press corps and the authorities that are carrying out this investigation. Since this matter came to light, I want to encourage the security agencies not relent in their efforts to locate missing journalists and bring him back to his family.
“Because I see the press corps as part of the institution, and anything that touches one touches the rest of us.”
The Speaker said in a rapidly changing and highly volatile landscape today with and evolving technological innovations, the media space has seen vast changes in the way the media operates and the channels information is transmitted through.
