Journalists in Lagos have come again under the siege of attackers as another photojournalist is brutalised in the line of duty, yesterday.
The victim, Mr Tunde Ogundeji, former Photo Editor of Compass Newspaper, was beaten by thugs purportedly from the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) for attempting to take pictures of passengers on top of the coaches in Ikeja.
Ogundeji, who was brutalised by a number of thugs popularly called area boys sustained head injuries and he is recuperating at a nearby hospital.
LEADERSHIP gathered that the thugs brandished dangerous weapons like planks and bottles inflicting injuries on the man before he was rescued by a good Samaritan. His camera was also seized.
The management of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) later retrieved Ogundeji's camera from the thugs and handed it over to the Railway Station Police Command in Agege, Lagos.
