Amnesty International calls for an end to attack on media in Nigeria


Amnesty International has called for an end to the incessant attack on the media and journalists in Nigeria.

The human rights organization made the call while condemning the verbal attack on a Daily Trust reporter, Eyo Charles, in Calabar by a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode.

It was reported how Charles had a sour encounter at a press briefing with Fani-Kayode.

A video circulating on WhatsApp shows Fani-Kayode abruptly leaving the briefing after pouring invective on Charles who he claimed had asked him an insulting question.

The incident happened on Thursday at a private hotel where the former minister was briefing reporters on his tour of projects in the South-South states.
