Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Adamawa State council has strongly condemned the assault and battery of one of its female members, Nafeesah Vandi.

A statement jointly signed by the council chairman, Donald Dedan and his secretary, Fidelis Jocthtan, made available to newsmen states that the victim is a staff of the News Department, Adamawa Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Yola.

“The union describes the heinous act as unacceptable, wickedness and barbaric, manhandling and beating such a professional female practicing Journalist to a stupor by her alleged husband Mallam Ibrahim Aliyu, a sacked staff of PHCN.

“Though the police have already swung into action in investigating and arresting the perpetrator of the domestic violence, the NUJ calls for a speedier action towards the immediate arrest and prosecution of the said Mallam Ibrahim Aliyu according to the law and constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The union further calls on national and international organizations like FIDA, UNFPA, UNICEF as well as Civil Society Organizations that are propagating a total halt on violence against women to step into the matter for justice to prevail,” the statement said.
