It has been revealed that the remains of Vanguard reporter, Mr Tordue Salem, would be laid to rest on Saturday, December 11, 2021, in Gboko, Benue State.
A statement by the family revealed that the service of songs for the deceased would come up on December 9, at Godab Estate, Life Camp, Abuja, Federal Capital Territory.
In the statement by Dr Jeffery Kuraun, the body of the deceased would leave the National Hospital, Abuja, for Gboko, Benue State, on Friday, December 19, 2021.
Before his demise, Tordue Salem covered the House of Representatives for Vanguard Newspapers in Abuja.
Recall that he was declared missing on October 13, 2021, after the day’s job on his beat, only for the corpse to be discovered in the morgue of National Hospital, Abuja, a month after.
This was after the two chambers of the National Assembly, Senate and House of Representatives, Vanguard management, the Nigeria, Guild of Editors, NGE, Abuja chapter of Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, and other well-meaning Nigerians had piled pressures on the police and other security agencies to ensure he was found, dead or alive, because of the manner in which he disappeared.
