Still on the recently concluded general elections, the Nasarawa State NUJ frowned at some ugly incidents that almost marred the polls including inciting religious and ethnic statements made by some individuals as well as the attack on a journalist, Edwin Philip of Breeze FM Lafia by officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Crops (NSCDC) during the governorship elections in the State.
The union demanded that appropriate action be taken against perpetrators of such acts to serve as deterrent to others to forestall future occurrences and also demanded for compensation to the victim, Edwin Philip.
