The Nigeria Union of Journalists, Adamawa State, has demanded justice for a female journalist working with the Adamawa State Broadcasting Commission, Yola, Nafeesah Vandi.

The union, in a statement jointly signed by its Chairman, Donald Dedan; and Secretary, Fidelis Jocktan, condemned the alleged battering of Vandi by her husband, Ibrahim Aliyu.

Vandi was allegedly assaulted by Aliyu, a former worker with the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria.

The NUJ, while urging the police authorities who had apprehended the suspect to ensure diligent investigation and prosecution, described the attack as wicked and barbaric.

The union said it would not condone the beating of any woman to stupor, let alone a professional by her husband.

“Though the police have already swung into action in investigating and arresting the perpetrator of the domestic violence, the NUJ calls for a more speedy action into the investigation and prosecution of Mallam Ibrahim Aliyu, in accordance with the law and constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The union further calls on national and international organisations like FIDA, UNFPA, UNICEF as well as civil society organisations that are propagating a total halt on violence against women, to step into the matter for justice to prevail,” the statement added.
