The Broadcasting Organization of Nigeria has called for the protection of journalists and media houses in the country.
The executive secretary of BON, Yemisi Bamgbose, made this known in a statement while reacting to the attack on media houses in Port Harcourt few days ago.
He condemned the attacks describing it as barbaric, callous and highly uncivilised. He also called on the inspector general of police to provide security for broadcast stations in the country to prevent its recurrence.
“Any attack on any media organisation is an attack on the entire citizens which should not be allowed to happen. We call on the State Security Services to swing into action to fish out the masterminds of the dastardly act,” he said.
