Hoodlums Sets Akwa Ibom Broadcasting Corporation (AKBC) on Fire

The Akwa Ibom Broadcasting Corporation (AKBC) was reportedly set on fire yesterday October 21 by hoodlums. 

A senior official of AKBC revealed that, the attack only affected the section that houses the security department.

The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Akwa Ibom State has condemned the attack which it said was “uncalled for and meaningless”.

“Certainly, this is not the way to go. It is a classic case of blaming the doctor for the disease of the victim,” the NUJ secretary, Dominic Akpan reported.

“We urge security agencies to be on top of the situation to prevent further wanton destruction of lives and property and also ensure that perpetrators of these dastardly acts are brought to book in accordance with the laws of our State.

“The Union further commends Governor Udom Emmanuel for the swift response to the ugly development by imposing a curfew in the State to control the situation.

“We stand with our members in the AKBC family at this moment”.

An eyewitness who shared the video through social media said “the country is down”.
