BENIN—THE family of slain journalist with Independent Television, ITV, Benin City, Edo State, Mr Chuks Ogu, has appealed to the state Police Command and the state government to assist in fishing out the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
Meanwhile, Governor Adams Oshiomhole has condoled with the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Edo State Chapter and Mrs. Joy Ogu, widow of Mr. Chuka Ogu, a cameraman with ITV, Benin, who was shot dead by suspected assailants, last weekend.
In separate condolence messages to NUJ and the widow, Governor Oshiomhole said it was unfortunate that such a promising young journalist was cut down in his prime.
However, making the appeal on behalf of the family when the executive members of African Network for Environment and Economic Justice, ANEEJ, a non-governmental organisation, paid a condolence visit to the family, elder brother of the deceased, Mr. Gashion Mba, said the family was yet to understand the motive of the killers and that justice could only be done to the deceased if security agencies were able to apprehend the killers.
