ATTACK ON AKBC and FACILITIES IN UYO ( Watch Video)

Published

on

 

The Nigeria Union of Journalists, Akwa Ibom State Council, condemns in the strongest terms the destruction on the Akwa Ibom Broadcasting Corporation, Administrative Building located along Udo Udoma Avenue, Uyo and other facilities within the metropolis by hoodlums masquerading as #ENDSARS protesters.

These attacks are uncalled for and meaningless. Certainly, this is not the way to go. It is a classic case of blaming the doctor for the disease of the victim.

We urge security agencies to be on top of the situation to prevent further wanton destruction of lives and property and also ensure that perpetrators of these dastardly acts are brought to book in accordance with the laws of our State.

The Union further commends His Excellency, Governor Udom Emmanuel for the swift response to the ugly development by imposing a curfew in the State to control the situation.

Lekki Tollgate Massacre: Army Denies Despite Video Evidence

The Nigerian Army headquarters has denied deploying soldiers to the Lekki tollgate despite video evidence showing uniformed soldiers shooting at the scene.

The army in a Facebook post branded several reports linking soldiers at the tollgate as fake news, stating, “No soldiers were at the scene”.

Officials of the Lekki Concession Company had earlier on Tuesday evening removed CCTV cameras from the tollgates.

Around 7pm, the floodlights and display boards at the tollgates were also switched off, putting the entire area in total darkness.

Soon afterwards, security agents began opening fire on protesters.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State had imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state following the violence that engulfed the state leading to the burning down of at least three police

However, some protesters remained adamant and refused to vacate the Lekki tollgate which is the epicentre of the protests.

Several rights groups have condemned the Federal Government for the massacre.
