The Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) has called on the security agencies, especially the Nigerian Police Force, to fish out the driver that ran down the late Dimgba Igwe.
The call was contained in a statement signed by the General Secretary, Mr. Isaac Ighure, issued yesterday in Lagos.
The guild while commiserating with the family of the late Igwe and all Nigerians, charged the nation’s security agencies to “fish out the cowardly driver who committed the dastardly act.”
“It is painful to recall that only recently, between August 27 and August 31, Mr. Igwe was in Katsina, where he actively participated in all activities at the 10th All Nigerian Editors Conference (ANEC). His death, therefore, has dealt a great blow to the journalism profession to which he and his inseparable colleague, Mr. Mike Awoyinfa, had made invaluable contributions,” the statement said.
Mr. Igwe, 58, Vice Chairman of The Sun Publishing Company and a Fellow of the NGE, died Saturday morning of wounds he suffered when he was knocked down by a hit-and-run driver while jogging in his Okota, Lagos, residential area.
