PRIMVThe Executive publisher of Prime Magazine, a Badagry based publication, Yomi Olomofe was on Thursday June 25th beaten to a pulp by hoodlums suspected to be smugglers for allegedly reporting their illicit activities in Badagry, Lagos state  Narrating his ordeal to Vanguard, Mr Olomofe said

“I was with another colleague of mine on a visit to the command, when some smugglers, who claimed that journalists have been writing negative stories about them, pounced on me. While beating me, they threatened to kill me so as to serve as deterrent to journalists writing stories about them. I was there with the correspondent of Tide Newspaper, thank God a friend from Rotary Club came to take me away, I would have been dead, because I
was left there almost lifeless. These hoodlums are not unknown. They are known to everybody, but they are above the law. They even told me that they have killed many people and nothing happened” he said
