The Zamfara Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has mourned the death of veteran journalist, Hamisu Danjibga, who was murdered by gunmen recently.
In a statement issued to newsmen in Gusau on Thursday by the state publicity secretary, Yusuf Idris, the party described Danjibga’s murder as disheartening.
Danjibga, who was the State Correspondent of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), had been missing for three days before his corpse was found in a soakaway behind his house on Wednesday.
“The state party chairman, Alhaji Tukur Danfulani, wishes to commiserate with the immediate families of the deceased, the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), and the entire members of the NUJ Correspondents Chapel in the state over Danjibga’s death,” Idris said.
The scribe further described Danjibga as a friend to everyone.
“He was dedicated, and he spent the whole of his life serving humanity through the profession of journalism.
“This is a great loss to the journalism profession, Zamfara, and Nigeria as a whole. We pray to Allah to forgive his sins and grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss.”
Idris said that the state APC leadership has therefore urged security agencies to investigate and bring the perpetrators of the terrible act to book.
The remains of the deceased have since been buried in Gusau, the Zamfara capital, according to Islamic rites.
