WITHDRAWAL OF STATEMENT ON FAKE NEWS
2nd July, 2018
RE: PRESS RELEASE:
RE: PROSECUTE AUTHOR OF FAKE NEWS – MURIC
The earlier post was deleted because it has come to our knowledge that Mr. Andrew Ajijah, formerly of Premium Times, relied on the story written by another reporter from another media house. Although he acted unprofessionally by not asking for the recording of the interview, Andrew was not the originator of the fake story. We are of the opinion that he has received enough punishment by being sacked by his employer. As a result of this, we wish to withdraw the press statement which we submitted earlier.
We therefore request that you IGNORE THE PRESS STATEMENT SENT EARLIER ENTITLED: PROSECUTE AUTHOR OF FAKE NEWS.
We will substitute it with another story very soon.
Thank you for your usual cooperation. Allah bless you sir/ma.
