Missing Vanguard reporter, Tordue Salem, found dead

The Vanguard Newspaper reporter who went missing last month, Tordue Salem, has been found dead.

The newspaper reported that details of the recovery of his remains were sketchy as of 9.30pm on Thursday.

The Federal House of Representatives correspondent was last seen around Total filling station, close to the Force headquarters, Abuja.

An alarm was raised the day after he was last seen when his whereabouts became unknown.

One suspect, Prince Enyenihi, 25, has been arrested for attempting to extort the reporter’s family. He had sent a text message to Salem’s wife with a concealed number demanding N100 million as ransom.

His message read in part, “If you don’t pay, Tordue will be killed in seven days. For more information, call this number.”

During interrogation, Enyenihi said he got Salem’s wife’s number from a flyer which declared him missing.
