The management of Igbere TV has released an update concerning the alleged abduction of its CEO, James Anyalekwa and the confiscation of their website, Facebook handles and all social media by the abductors.
The update, sent to Jungle Journalist Media Limited, is reproduced in its entirety:
“UPDATE: Igbere TV boss, Emeh James Anyalekwa yet to be found or released by his abductors
…his abductors apparently coercing him to publish fake stories against some selected top-figures
…deletes every other admin/editor from control panel to stall any disclaimer or deletion of posts
Fake News posted so far include;
1. “BREAKING: Igbere TV boss is dead”
2. “BREAKING: ex Abia Gov., T.Orji and his son, Chinedu finally arrested”
3. “BREAKING: Finally, Leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu arrested by Interpol”.
We are calling on Nigerians, readers and fans of Igbere TV to ignore subsequent misleading and malicious reports from our platform as they are not from us.
Both our website and the Facebook page have been compromised since the abduction of our Executive Director around Kubwa area of Abuja on Thursday.
