Oyo SWAN has condemned attack on journalists covering 3SC/Remo game.

9Janewshub.com.ng reports that the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria Oyo State Chapter has condemned the brutal attack on three sports journalists at the Lekan Salami stadium shortly after the 3SC/Remo Stars game on Wednesday.

The three assaulted journalists were Mr Tobi Samuel Adepoju, Mr Ayo Animasaun and Miss Atinuke Esan.

In a press release signed by the Association’s Scribe, Adewale Tijani, Oyo SWAN described the unwarranted attack on harmless journalists, who were carrying out their duties, as not only uncivilized but also barbaric.

According to the Chairman of Oyo SWAN Mr Niyi Alebiosu, the attack is unjustifiable and portends bad omen for sports in Nigeria.

Mr Alebiosu called on the Management of the Shooting Stars Sports Club and State Football Association to fish out the perpetrators of the heinous act and bring them to justice.

Oyo SWAN appealed to sports journalists to remain calm in face of this unhealthy and dangerous situation, assuring that the leadership of the body of sports writers in the state are making efforts to address the situation and ensuring that such won’t re-occur.
