NPAN Laments Journalists’ Abduction, Sues For Their Freedom Unharmed


The Newspaper Proprietors’ Association of Nigeria (NPAN) on Tuesday expressed its concern over the safety of Messers Abdulgafar Alabelewe and AbdulRaheem Abdu, the Kaduna State’s correspondents of The Nation and Blue Print newspapers respectively, who were abducted last weekend.

In a statement signed and issued by Kabiru A. Yusuf, NPAN president, the Association stated that “the prolonged silence from their abductors who seized the journalists along with members of their families, including wives and children”, was more worrying.

Read the statement: “The trauma induced on both their biological and professional families by this condemnable event, are better imagined.

“We call on the Federal Government to ensure the safe return of the journalists and their families, by deploying all the necessary security assets at its disposal.

“We stand in sympathy with the families as we pray for their safe return.

“We appeal to their abductors to ensure that none of them comes to harm but returned all safely”.
