Journalists covering the recent abduction of scores of schoolgirls in Jangebe, Zamfara, have been attacked by angry youths in the community.

The journalists attacked are correspondents of Thunder Blowers Multi Media services, Daily Trust, Channels TV, TVC and News Agency of Nigeria.

FIJ gathered that the journalists were attacked by youths in Jangebe communities as part of their demonstration of anger because of the abduction.
