Bauchi — The Bauchi State Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has apologized to the leadership of the Nigerian Union of Journalists for beating a journalist working with the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), Bauchi.

Last Saturday a reporter working with the NTA was beaten by NSCDC men at a turbaning ceremony of new Kilishin Bauchi while performing his duty.

State commandant of the corps Jibrin Shuaybu said “the mistake had happened, and I am sorry over it.” He appealed for closer ties with journalists in the state in order to succeed in having sustainable peace in the state and in moving the state forward.
