Mr Hamisu Danjibga, a journalist who went missing in Zamfara State, Northwest Nigeria has been found dead in a soakaway behind his house.
A statement by the Nigeria Union Journalist (NUJ), on Thursday, recalled that Danjibga, a reporter with the Voice of Nigeria (VON), went missing earlier this week but was later found dead.
According to the statement signed by Zamfara NUJ Secretary, Ibrahim Gada, Danjibga’s remains were found on Wednesday by some Islamic schoolchildren.
The statement read: “Zamfara State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists regrets to announce the death of Hamisu Danjibga a reporter with Voice of Nigeria (VON) whose body was found in a soakaway behind his house three days after missing.
“The discovery of his corpse was a result of an unpleasant odor observed by Islamiya children in the evening of Wednesday 20th September 2023 who drew the attention of their teachers.
“After breaking the sockaway, the dead body was confirmed to be that of Danjibga by his family and some neighbors. His funeral rites have since been observed according to Islamic injunctions.
“The Union extends its heartfelt condolence to the family, Voice of Nigeria, and the 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.”
