The Socio-economic rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has asked the former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode to apologise to the Daily Trust Journalist, Eyo Charles publicly while condemning the reported harassment and attack on the Journalist.
The organisation made this known on its official social platform on Tuesday, over a viral video, where Femi Fani-Kayode, threw up all decorum into the winds and was calling the reporter so many unprintable names in the presence of his other helpless colleagues.
SERAP said, “No one should ever call any journalist “stupid” simply for doing their job. Journalistic freedom also covers possible recourse to a degree of exaggeration, or even provocation. The media has a vital role to play as “public watchdog” in imparting information of serious public concern and should not be inhibited or intimidated from playing that role
