The Conference of Benue Journalists (CBJ) has called on the Inspector- General of Police (IGP) and other security agencies, to locate its missing member, Mr. Tordue Salem, a Senior Reporter working with the Vanguard Newspaper. 
 
President of CBJ, Dr. Anule Emmanuel, in a statement yesterday, said Salem, who covers the House of Representatives, has not been seen and reached since Wednesday, October 13.
 
According to him,  the case of Salem, further raises concern on worsening insecurity in the nation’s capital, Abuja and throws up a bigger challenge for security agencies to step up their responsibility of protecting life and property. 
 
The group noted that journalists, like every other citizen require full protection, as they go about their lawful duties of informing members of the public without fear of molestation, intimidation, and harassment. 
 
“Members of CBJ are shocked by the mysterious disappearance of our member, an adult and therefore challenge the police and other security agencies to rise up to the occasion of locating Salem,” the statement said. 
 
Besides, Emmanuel urged journalists and family members of Salem to be prayerful, and remain calm, while efforts were on to establish his whereabouts.
