He was a reporter for Vanguard Newspaper, covering the House of Representatives.

Some persons have reportedly been arrested in connection with his disappearance, Daily Trust reports.

He was last seen around Total filling station, close to the Force headquarters, Abuja, on October 13, 2021.

One of them is identified as Prince Enyenihi, who was said to have contacted the journalist’s wife to demand a N100 million ransom.

“If you don’t pay, Tordue will be killed in seven days. For more information, call this number,” a test message from Enyenihi to Salem’s wife reportedly said.

The House of Representatives had called on the Nigerian security agencies to immediately launch an investigation into the whereabouts of the missing journalist, Tordue Salem, and give a report to the house in two weeks.
This was made known in a motion raised on Tuesday by Ndudi Elumelu, the minority leader of the house.

In the motion, Elumelu raised concerns that the sudden disappearance of the journalist is “an extension of the deteriorating state of insecurity in the nation’s capital which questions the efficiency of the country’s security operatives”.
