In a statement by the Special Adviser on Media, Mr Ola Awoniyi on Friday said, the Senate and House of Representatives of National Assembly, passed separate motions over the disappearance of Mr Salem, for him to be quickly found and reunite hale and hearty with his family and colleagues.

“This is a very unfortunate and heart-rending development,” Lawan says.

The Senate President sends his condolences to the family of Mr Salem, the management of Vanguard Newspapers, the National Assembly Press Corps and the Nigerian Union of Journalists(NUJ) over this sad loss.
