Nasarawa State Governor Engr. Abdullahi Sule has condemned the attacks on some media outfits in the country, describing it as an affront on democracy and free speech.
In a letter delivered to the Management of TV Continental, TVC in Lagos, Governor Sule sympathises with the station over the destruction and looting of its head office in Lagos.
The letter, which was signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ibrahim Addra, described as unfortunate the hijacking of the EndSars protest by hoodlums leading to avoidable loss of lives and property.

In his response, the Chief Executive Officer Mr. Andrew Hanlon thanked Governor Sule for identifying with the station, expressing the gratitude of the management and staff.
