Mr. Salem who is a native of Tiv Benue State was reportedly sighted on Wednesday evening after which he seemed to have disappeared.

The NUJ asked the police and DSS to help unravel the mystery surrounding Mr. Salem’s whereabouts.

“For all us journalists in Abuja, we have been on edge these past few days over the mysterious disappearance of our colleague and friend, Mr. Tordue Salem,” the statement, signed by the Union’s Chairman, Emmanuel Ogbeche and Secretary, Ochiaka Ugwu, said.

“It is worrying that an adult will simply vanish into thin air without a trace. This is unacceptable and we urge the police and DSS to rise up to the occasion and provide answers to this troubling situation”.

The NUJ officials also called on journalists to remain hopeful, prayerful and offer any leads that could prove useful in resolving the impasse.
