Abayomi Adeshida: NUJ FCT Outraged, Demand Sanctions by Kwanza: 10:23pm On Nov 07, 2019
The Nigerian Union of Journalists, FCT Council, has expressed its outrage over the physical assault suffered by Mr. Abayomi Adeshida, a photojournalist with the Vanguard Newspapers, at the Presidential Villa, Thursday.

Adeshida, who was covering an event at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, was brutal assaulted by security aides of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo while he watched.

The NUJ FCT in a statement on Thursday, described the assault as one of the sad developments that signposts how dangerous it was to be a journalist in Nigeria especially in the past four years.

“The brutal physical assault by security details of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo against one of our members in the legitimate pursuit of his duties as a journalist further signposts how dangerous it is to be a journalist in Nigeria, especially in the last four years,” a statement signed by chairman of the council, Emmanuel Ogbeche, read.

“On a day in which Nigeria joined the rest of the world to mark the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists for security operatives to unashamedly batter a journalist in the presence of the vice president speaks to how troubling and dark Nigeria has descended into.

“We are still at a loss as to why operatives of the DSS, not like they are some street urchins, had to behave in such a despicable manner should send shivers down the spine of every reasonable Nigerian. We are however comforted by the fact that journalists in Nigeria have seen more terrible days and survived and would definitely outlast every vestige of jackboot and intimidation by state and non-state actors,” the statement further read.

Ogbeche called on Vice President to initiate an immediate probe into the unfortunate situation, while in the interim, Mr. Adeshida’s damaged camera is replaced as well as his full medical bills undertaken by the federal government.

"While we demand an immediate probe into the ugly incident with a view for disciplinary measures against all those involved in this clear abuse on a journalist and journalism, we call on Vice President Osinbajo to order for the replacement of Mr. Adeshida’s damaged camera as well as settle his medical expenses.

“However, the council will explore other avenues including legal remedy against these individuals that have further endangered press freedom and safety of journalists in Nigeria.”

The NUJ chairman urged journalists in the country not to be deterred in the performance of their duties while upholding the ethics of the profession.

He should go and sleep. When you guys were busy supporting APC and convincing others to vote APC to make Nigeria better, but reverse is the case.

A hell of his own making.


The truth remains, everyone should remain docile till 2023.

Anything dem say make you do, do ooo; even if na to chop their sheet or drink their urine.

The best revenge is come 2023 with our voters card. We shall vote a leader that would bring back democracy.

The only problem now is come 2023, some Nigerians lose their brains to politicians which make it difficult to achieve those dream we wished for. Every election periods, some are always hypnotised, then after elections, their brains are restored.


The VP is very angry for now, just let him be. He is trying all his best to make Nigeria better, but some members don't are obstructing his way.

I am even more disappointed in the Ogbeche Guy.
How can u tell the vice president to probe what happened?
Instead of the journalists to press charges they are saying they are consoled by the fact that they have been even more terrible events in the past!
It's like they're not ready. U can even sense fear when he says they will ask the vice president to institute a probe. Journalists that can't even cover important happenings in the country.
nonsense!

The last time the VP was in Ibadan for an event, I also saw the DSS guys attached to him acting very aggressively towards photo journalists. I thought I saw a look of displeasure on the face of the VP at a point. Was hoping he would have called them to order

We have seen where an assassin used journalist tag to penetrate to his target. The security men are doing their job. The journalist need to be more careful when discharge their duty. Brutality is not allow and I'm not in support of it but we need to be security conscious.
