LAGOS JOURNALISTS CONDEMN HARASSMENT OF ITS MEMBERS

The Lagos Journalists' League (LJL) has condemned the ill-advised actions of the Lagos State Police Operatives who reportedly harassed its members. 


This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Lagos Journalists' League acting Secretary, Enitan Olukotun, on Wednesday, May 20.


According to the statement, journalists who were designated as essential workers were locked up and detained overnight by the Police Operatives in the State for being on the road after 8 pm when the curfew started. 


Enitan described the development as a barbaric and provocative action, even after the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 had given Journalists permission to move without being harassed due to the essential nature of their jobs. 


Lamenting on the development, he noted that journalists are not appreciated by the Public even after working round the clock to ensure the public is fed with genuine information. 


He added that members of the association had been exposed to COVID-19 in quest of sourcing for Information. 


The Association told the Lagos State Government that it might also choose to embark on industrial actions just like other essential workers who were harassed if nothing is done about the situation.
