#EndSARS: Hoodlums Set Fire on Ibom State Broadcasting Corporation TV (Video)


Hoodlums on Thursday night attacked and set fire on an administrative building of the government-owned Akwa Ibom State Broadcasting Corporation (AKBC), despite the curfew in the state.

AKBC operates radio and television stations in Akwa Ibom.

A senior official of AKBC confirmed the incident but said the attack only affected the section that houses the security department.

The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Akwa Ibom State has condemned the attack which it said was “uncalled for and meaningless”.

“Certainly, this is not the way to go. It is a classic case of blaming the doctor for the disease of the victim,” the NUJ said in a statement by its secretary, Dominic Akpan.

“We urge security agencies to be on top of the situation to prevent further wanton destruction of lives and property and also ensure that perpetrators of these dastardly acts are brought to book in accordance with the laws of our State.

Watch the moment AKBC was set on fire.
