The International Press Center (IPC) has condemned the abduction of Mrs. Toyin Nwosu, a journalist and wife of the Deputy Managing Director of The Sun Newspapers, Mr. Steve Nwosu.

Reacting to the news of her abduction by the gunmen in the early hours of Monday at the Nwosu’s Lagos residence, Director of IPC, Mr. Lanre Arogundade, strongly condemned the abduction stating that it was becoming very worrisome that journalists seem to have become regular targets of kidnappers.

“How come yet another kidnap of a journalist when we have barely ‘celebrated’ the freedom of Donu kogbara of the Vanguard?” Arogundade queried.

Similarly, the Lagos State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), while criticisng the abduction, called for her immediate and unconditional release.
