Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, have however denied killing a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) and burning the outpost of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in Abuja.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Union of Journalists, FCT Council, has expressed deep sadness over the death of a promising journalist, Precious Owolabi, on Monday.

The NUJ in a statement by its Chairman Emmanuel Ogbeche, described his death as one too many; stressing that it was another sad day for the journalism profession in Nigeria.

He urged President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to take responsibility for Owolabi’s death as the primary purpose of government is welfare and security of citizens.
