Nigeria’s Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has told the Nigeria Police and other security agencies to unravel the circumstances behind the death of Vanguard Newspaper reporter, Tordue Salem.
Recall that Tordue, who was last seen on October 13, 2021, was reportedly found dead in Abuja in the late hours of Thursday, November 11, 2021 after allegedly being knocked down by a hit-and-run driver.
Recall also that before the incident, the indigene of Benue State was a reporter with Vanguard Newspaper covering the House of Representatives.
Meanwhile, reacting to his death, Senator Omo-Agege expressed regret over the incident and emphasised the need for conclusive investigations to unmask those involved in Tordue’s death.
A statement issued to newsmen by his media adviser, Yomi Odunuga on Friday quoted Omo-Agege as saying that the parade of Itoro Clement – a commercial driver who allegedly knocked down and killed the journalist raised further questions on the circumstances leading to the death.
