Zamfara State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists has announced the death of Hamisu Danjibga, a Freelance reporter with Voice of Nigeria (VON) whose body was found in a sock away behind his house three days after missing.

The Secretary of the Council, Ibrahim Ahmad, in a statement says the discovery of his corpse was as result of unpleasant odour observed by Islamiya Children in the evening of Wednesday 20th September,2023, who drew the attention of their teachers.

“After breaking the sock away, the dead body was confirmed to be that of Danjibga by his family and some neighbors”, Ahmad added.

The statement noted that, “His funeral rites have since been observed according to Islamic injunctions”.

Ahmad states with regret that the Union extends its heartfelt condolence to the family, Voice of Nigeria and entire Zamfara State.

“The Council while expressing deep concern over the nature of Danjibga’s demise, appealed to security agencies to thoroughly investigate the matter and bring the perpetrators of the dastardly act to justice.

Friends and associates have continued to send their condolence and sympathy to the family over the loss.

The sad incident has brought to the fore the dangers faced by Journalists in the course of doing their job as the fourth estate of the realm to hold the three other arms of governments accountable.

The Police in Zamfara State are yet to unravel the motive behind the dastardly act, which the Media from all walks of life have condemned in its entirety.
