A statement signed by the council’s Secretary, Usman Bello in Kano on Wednesday said the Council found it necessary to condemn the act because it was carried out while they were discharging their professional duties.

“More condemnable is that the attack was carried out on a woman journalist.’’

The union, however, commended the swift action taken by the Nigeria Police in the arrest and arraignment of the suspected hoodlums.

It reminded the general public that journalists are working to protect the interests of people and, therefore, do not deserve such treatment.

NAN recalls that some undesirable elements on Monday attacked some NTA reporters, including a lady, who were in the market to file a report on some illegal structures erected at the market.

NAN also recalls that no fewer than five suspects were apprehended by the Police and charged to court.
