The Nigerian Union of Journalists, Osun State chapter of the Correspondent Chapel, has turned down the monetary compensation offered to the correspondent, Mr. Timothy Agbor, who was attacked by some operatives of the Department of State Services.

According to PUNCH, three officials of the DSS, had on Monday brutalised Agbor and Toba Adedeji, a reporter with Osun Defender, during a protest by the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, when Agbor was beaten thoroughly and his mobile phone destroyed while Adedeji was injured.

Now, the Secretary of the chapel, Mr. Olaniyi Ajibola, said on Tuesday that the DSS sent N40,000 to Agbor as compensation, but the chapel had rejected the offer.

He said;

β€œThe DSS sent N40,000 to Timothy Agbor, but we have returned the money to the sender. The agency said the money was meant for the mobile phone that was destroyed. We are not interested in money. What we are interested in is justice.

β€œMany operatives of the DSS in this state are known for this kind of behaviour; they attack journalists at will and without provocation.”
