House of Reps ask security agencies to find missing Vanguard reporter Tordue Salem

The House of Representatives has asked security agencies to investigate the circumstances that led to the disappearance of a Journalist, Tordue Henry Salem, and do everything within its means to secure his release.

LIB reported that Salem, a Vanguard Correspondent covering the House of Representatives, was last seen on October 19, leaving the premises of the National Assembly Salem. Efforts to locate his whereabouts since then by his colleagues, relatives and security operatives have proved abortive.

On Monday, October 25, members of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) stormed the Nigeria Police Force’s headquarters in Abuja to protest over the missing reporter.

The House directive was contained in resolution members passed in Abuja on Tuesday, November 9.

It followed a motion moved by the Minority Leader of the House, Rep. Ndudi Elumelu, who informed members that the journalist was last seen in Garki in the Federal Capital Territory on October 13, 2021.
