A reporter with Channels Television has been beaten mercilessly by security operatives attached to Kogi State Government House.
Security personnel attached to Kogi state government house went on rampage on Monday night and beat up Channels TV reporter, Segun Salami, Punch reported.
The reporter was rushed to an undisclosed hospital in Lokoja, the state capital for treatment. While speaking to newsmen, Salami revealed that trouble started when one of the security personnel wrongly claimed that he was pointing at him while discussing with a female colleague with AIT.
All attempts to deny making any reference to him fell on deaf ear as the security agent, aided by other security agents, descended heavily on him, dragging him on the floor to the state house detention centre where he was locked up.
When contacted, the state Police Commissioner, Wilson Inalegwu, said the command was still investigating the matter.
“We take the conduct of our personnel seriously and you can rest assured that no sinner will go unpunished.”
