Nigeria: Abduction Of Journalists, Shock, Heartbreaking – AMDF …Calls For Immediate, Unconditional Release

The Africa Media Development Foundation, AMDF has said the heartbreaking report of the abduction of two Journalists along side their families in Kaduna, North West Nigeria, has left the organization and colleagues in the state of shock.

The victims were kidnapped on Saturday, 6th July 2024 at their residence .

A statement by the AMDF Press Freedom Manager, Zhiro Jatau says the organization is deeply distressed and outraged by this heinous act which represents a grave threat to press freedom and the fundamental rights of journalists to operate without fear of violence or intimidation.

“Journalists play an indispensable role in our society by informing the public, holding the powerful accountable, and contributing to the democratic process. The abduction of our colleagues is not just an attack on individuals but an assault on the entire journalism profession and the principles of freedom of expression.

“We express our deepest solidarity with the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) Kaduna Council, the affected journalists, and their families during this extremely challenging time. We call for the immediate and unconditional release of all kidnapped journalists. It is imperative that the authorities act swiftly and decisively to ensure their safe return and bring the perpetrators to justice.

“The security situation in Kaduna and Nigeria at large is of great concern and has inflicted fear amongst citizens. AMDF calls on all security agencies to intensify effort in addressing this challenging situation. The Federal Government must be proactive in the fight against insurgency and banditry. “The Legislators should create bills and formulate laws for the hasty prosecution of those found guilty.

“Considering the deteriorating security in the country, the idea of State policing has become imperative for all stakeholders to revisit and review to meet the needs of individual state in the country.

“In these troubling times, it is more important than ever to stand together in defense of press freedom and the safety of journalists. We remain committed to advocating for the rights and protection of media professionals across Africa and will continue to work towards a safer and more secure environment for all journalists.

“Furthermore, AMDF calls on all media organizations, civil society groups, and international bodies to join in condemning this abduction and to support efforts aimed at securing the release of the kidnapped journalists.

“AMDF also encourages journalists not to be demoralized by the incident but continue with their duties diligently”, the statement concludes.
