Tordue Henry Salem, a journalist with the Vanguard newspaper, was found dead in Abuja.
Salem, a House of Representatives correspondent, was last seen on October 13, 2021, and was found dead in the nation’s capital on Thursday, November 10th, according to the Vanguard newspaper.
“Details of the circumstances surrounding the recovery of his remains were still sketchy as at 9.30 pm, Thursday,” the newspaper said.
Journalists in Abuja attacked the police headquarters on Monday, October 25 to protest Salem’s continuing disappearance.
They requested assistance from the police and the DSS in solving the enigma surrounding Mr. Salem’s location.
“It is worrying that an adult will simply vanish into thin air without a trace. This is unacceptable and we urge the police and DSS to rise up to the occasion and provide answers to this troubling situation,” NUJ Abuja said in a statement jointly signed by the union’s Chairman, Emmanuel Ogbeche, and Secretary, Ochiaka Ugwu.
During the rally, Police PRO Frank Mba addressed the gathering, indicating that efforts to locate Salem are still underway.
“As I speak to you, we have made significant process with the investigation. We were able to trace when he left the National Assembly. We were able to interact with a young lady who spent time with him that night.
“We have the recordings of the last call he made. Also, we were able to speak with six different persons he spoke to that night,” Mba said.
Salem was, however, found dead weeks after.
