A Vangaurd Reporter and their House of Representatives Correspondent, in Abuja, Tordue Henry Salem has been declared missing by the Nigeria Police.
According to findings, the journalist was last seen around a Total Filling Station, opposite Police headquarters, last Wednesday evening, October 13.
His last Facebook post read; “Anambra State Deputy Governor, Nkem Okeke defects to APC and you say it doesn’t matter”
The FCT Commissioner of Police Babaji Sunday, who spoke on the development, said operatives of the Command were working round the clock to unravel the whereabouts of Tordue.
Babaji acknowledged that the matter was reported at the National Assembly Police Station and when he was briefed, he immediately ordered a radio alert to all police divisions and Area Commands to commence the search for the journalist.
“We are seriously on the matter. However, we have not received any information about any kidnap or demand for ransom. My men have not received any information about any dead corpse either on the road or abandoned corpse from the mortuary. But we are seriously on the matter and searching,” he said.
The police chief said he was further made to understand that the journalist did not carry his car to the National Assembly complex on that Wednesday, hence there is possibility he may have gone out with some other persons.
He, however, assured that the Police will not rest on its oars until the mystery surrounding the journalists’ disappearance was unraveled.
A senior officer at the office of the Inspector General of Police, was quoted as saying efforts were being made to locate Tordue.
“This matter is noted. We will trace and deal. Will do our possible best to assist the process of unravelling it all. Regards,” the officer added.
