“We were amazed that those thugs could found their way into the secretariat of NUJ and unleashed terror on anyone in sight because we were having a scheduled press conference with two senators from the state.
“This Kaduna is becoming something else for us to practise our profession. You can imagine that despite the presence of security agents, the miscreants still gained access into the premises of the Secretariat.
“Kaduna is becoming a worst state in the entire country because some political bigots are having issue with other politicians.
“It is Kaduna that dragged the NUJ rating backward and this started getting worsening just few years ago. We are in serious danger here in Kaduna”, a veteran journalist lamented.
Senators Shehu Sani and Hunkuyi have visited the council’s Secretariat on Sunday when the incident occurred.
Meanwhile the national body of NUJ and Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai have condemned the attack in string term and called on the Police to be more proactive in protecting lives and property of Nigerians.
The attack was coming few months after the Secretariat was besieged by security agents to stop planned press briefing by student groups from southern part of the state over the continuous closure of their school by state government since December 2015.
