#EndSARS Protests : Stop assault on Media-NUJ


The Nigeria Union of Journalists has condemned in strong terms the latest attack by unknown persons on Television Continental (TVC) in Lagos and other media houses and demand an immediate investigation into circumstances that led to the burning down of the station.

The union decried the situation in a statement issued on Wednesday and signed by NUJ National Secretary, Shuaibu Usman Leman.

‘’The impunity against journalists and media generally is alarming and worrisome. The assault against the free press is most evident in countries where there are dictatorships and authoritarian governments,’’ said the statement.

Solacebase reports that apart from TVC Lagos office attacked by suspected hoodlums on Wednesday, Lagos Television (LTV) was also attacked while the staff of Channels Television had to flee from office and the station had to go offline.

The statement read: ‘’While there is no way of knowing the motivation of every single attack against the media, we worry why Government is not showing support and concern for the safety and security of media personnel and equipment.

‘’We call on journalists to note that self-preservation, and staying alive should always be the first safety code. No assignment is worthy of the life of a media worker. Journalists should always evaluate the physical and mental demands of assignments, especially in crises or conflict situations, before embarking on them.’’

It added that these acts of recklessness on the media are barbaric, cannot be justified and must be curtailed immediately.
