In a statement by his spokesman, Samuel Aruwan, El-Rufai was quoted as saying he has ordered investigation into the incident.

“Having been briefed on the situation, the governor expressed sympathy with the NUJ and the persons that were harassed by the hoodlums. The Governor directed that the security agencies should investigate and take necessary action against the hoodlums. The Governor also directed security agencies to beef up security at the NUJ secretariat to protect journalists doing their duty,” the statement read.
