The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Adamawa State Council is calling on the Adamawa State Police Command to take a decisive action against the O/C SARS and the DPO Jimeta Division for coordinating an uncivilized operation by storming into the NUJ Secretariat with Three Hilux vans loaded with Dangerous weapons on the 2nd of April 2020 by 7pm where they harassed, intimidated, assaulted and arrested twelve associated members of the NUJ to its headquarters.
