The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to deploy all necessary resources at his disposal to apprehend the killers of Mr. Famous Giobaro, a journalist with the Bayelsa State owned Glory FM Station who was shot dead by unknown gunmen who stormed his residence in Yenagoa, the state capital over the weekend.
The Union in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja and signed by its National Secretary, Shuaibu Usman Leman, said the murder has once again brought to the fore, the precarious security situation in the country where hoodlums, armed robbers and other criminals now strike at will without fear of being stopped by security agents.
It called on President Muhammadu Buhari and heads of all security agencies in the country to redouble their efforts at protecting lives and property of all law abiding citizens.
While commiserating with the family of the late Journalist, the NUJ reminded the Federal Government of its primary responsibility of protecting lives and property of all Nigerians and called on the government to live up to expectations in this regard.
“While looking forward to the prompt arrest of the perpetrators of this dastardly act, we call on all Nigerian journalists to take extra precaution regarding their safety and not treat any threat to their life with levity but report such promptly to appropriate authority,” the Union said.
