The Oyo State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) on Sunday, tasked the state Police Command to fish out the armed robbers that invaded Fresh FM 109.5 Ibadan earlier in the day.
Oyo NUJ in a statement by its Chairman, Comrade Demola Babalola, condemned the invasion of the station by a three-man gang of armed robbers that carted away at gun point phones, laptops, ATM cards, and other electronic gadgets belonging to staff on duty at the station.
In the statement, Oyo NUJ demanded probe of the attack on the Fresh FM owned by ace gospel musician, Yinka Ayefele.
Specifically, Oyo NUJ called on the State Commissioner of Police, CP Ngozi Onadeko ” to swing into action with a view to fishing out the gang to forestall a future recurrence on other media houses in particular and general public in general”.
” The attack on Fresh FM came to the NUJ as a rude shock. Here is a station that has been globally applauded for its rich content and pro-masses agenda.The rascals who carried out such an heinous crime against Fresh FM and inflicted hardship on the staffers of the station must be apprehended without much ado”, he said.
Oyo NUJ Chairman added, “I hereby call on the Commissioner of Police to set up a high powered investigative team of detectives to ensure long arm of the law catches up with those intruders.”
“This is to also appeal to the management of Fresh FM under Evang. Yinka Ayefele and my colleagues not to allow this development affect their contributions to nation building and good work they are doing for a better Oyo State and Nigeria as a whole”.
