Journalists demand justice for brutalised colleague by DSS officers in Oyo

Journalists in Oyo State rally to demand justice for their colleague, Mr. Tony Babatunde Daniel, who was brutally assaulted by DSS officers on Friday in Ibadan.

The incident, which occured at the NNPC filling station near the State NUJ Press Centre in Iyaganku GRA, has sparked condemnation from the media community, prompting urgent calls for the perpetrators to be identified and brought to justice.

Daniel’s harrowing ordeal unfolded around 9:30 am when he was reportedly beaten by DSS officers, leaving him brutally injured before he was rushed to the hospital for urgent medical attention.

His colleagues, who were angry by the brazen attack on their fellow journalist, have united in a resounding chorus demanding swift and decisive action from the DSS headquarters to apprehend those responsible for heinous act.

Daniel recounted the events that transpired at the NNPC station, where a routine fuel purchase turned into a nightmare of brutality and intimidation at the hands of the DSS officers.

Describing the traumatic experience of being assaulted and threatened with his life, he detailed the violent encounter that left him battered and his car damaged.

He also narrated the excessive force and aggression exhibited by the alleged perpetrators.

The disturbing account of Daniel’s ordeal has led to his colleagues expressing solidarity and demanding accountability for the heinous assault on one of their own.

The shocking brutality unleashed on Daniel has not only left him physically scarred, but raised troubling questions about the conduct of security operatives entrusted with safeguarding the public.

This heinous act is coming just 24 hours after the FirstNews editor, Mr Segun Olatunji was released from the captivity of the Defence Intelligence Agency(DIA), another security agency in the country.

The brazen attack on a journalist in the course of his duty has reignited concerns about press freedom and the safety of media practitioners, prompting a united front in condemning the wanton violence unleashed by the DSS officers.
