The Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation Abubakar Malami, says the Federal Government is set to end impunity for crimes against members of the public including journalists.

Malami made this known in a statement issued by Dr Umar Gwandu, his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations.

In a message to commemorate the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists, the Minister said it Is gratifying to note that Nigeria is no longer among the countries with impunity for crimes against journalists.

Dandal Kura Radio International gathered that the day is observed on Nov. 2 every year.

The day draws attention to the low global conviction rate for violent crimes against journalists and media workers, estimated at only one in every ten case.

While expressing commitment to maintain the tempo, Malami added that there is no room for complacency in ensuring serene online and offline atmosphere of journalism practice in the country.

He urged journalists to adhere strictly to the ethical provisions of their profession and refrain from misinformation and fake news.
