Journalists for Christ condemns blasts at Thisday, Sun offices
Journalists for Christ (JFC) has condemned the bombing of offices of media houses in Abuja and Kaduna on Thursday.

Thisday offices in Abuja and Kaduna and that of Sun Newspapers were targeted in the attack.

In a statement issued on behalf of the faith based media organization, its National Secretary, Gbenga Osinaike decried the targeting of media organisations by terrorists.

“It is very unfortunate that the terrorists have resorted to attacking media organisations resulting in the killing of persons and destruction of property.

“We sympatise with the affected media organisations and urge the federal government not to allow the security situation in the country to continue to degenerate to a situation where nowhere will be safe” Osinaike stated.

Whatever the grievance of the terrorists groups, JFC said there was no justification for the unending attacks on worship centres and public institutions which have claimed hundreds of lives and left many injured.
