A journalist, Maxwell Nashan, who worked with the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), has been hacked to death in a bush on the outskirts of Vunokilan, Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
Locals said some female farmers found the victim tied, with his mouth sealed and cuts on his body.He reportedly died while he was being rushed to the hospital, sources said.
The women then contacted operatives of the civil defence who rushed to the scene.One of his colleagues, Fidelis Jocktan, said the victim, who was preparing for his wedding, “was picked by his assailants at his residence in Bachure area.”
“They did not take anything from his house. They took him away and dropped him near the station tied up and unconscious.
“There are signs of beatings and cuts on his body. Some women going to the farm saw him and reported to civil defence operatives at the station who rushed him to hospital,” Mr Jocktan said.Confirming the development to NAN, the Adamawa Chairman of Nigerian Union of Journalists, Donald Dedan, said Mr Nashan died at the hospital.
