Security personnel attached to Kogi state government house went violent on Monday night and beat up Channels TV reporter, Segun Salami.

Salami is currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Lokoja, the state capital.

Salami told Punch correspondent that pandemonium broke loose when one of the security personnel falsely claimed that he was pointing at him while discussing with a female colleague with AIT.

All attempts to deny making any reference to him proved abortive as the security agent, aided by other security agents, descended heavily on him, dragging him on the floor to the state house detention centre where he was locked up.

When contacted, the state Police Commissioner, Wilson Inalegwu, said the command was still investigating the matter.

“We take the conduct of our personnel seriously and you can rest assured that no sinner will go unpunished.
