A mob broke into the Taraba State Radio Station in Jalingo, the state capital, vandalizing equipment, and furniture.
It was gathered that the irate youths invaded the Taraba State Broadcasting Corporation (TSBS) premises about 9am on Monday carting away movable equipment in all the departments of the station.
Confirming the incident to reporters, the state Commissioner of information and reorientation, Danjuma Adamu, condemned the looting and destruction of the broadcast station.
While inspecting the damage done to the station, Adamu said the dimension the protests took in the last two days was criminal, adding that the wanton destruction in the state had gone beyond the #EndSARS protest.
He said that the looting of COVID-19 warehouses had later turned to invasion, condemning the looting of private warehouses and shops.
He described the incident as worrisome, adding that the radio station has been seriously affected because all documents, equipment, and electrical appliances of the station had been stolen.
The commissioner said that apart from the radio station, other organizations being accommodated within the premises of the Radio Station were also destroyed.
He said that the government was quantifying the level of destruction to both public and private property perpetrated by the youths with a view to ascertaining the next line of action.
