FALSE ATTRIBUTION OF A PUBLICATION IN THE NATION NEWSPAPER
The Editor May 10, 2016,
The Nation Newspaper
I write in respect of a news story captioned “Fulani Herdsmen are jihadists” and published on page 10 in your edition of Thursday May 5, 2016. In the said report you wrongly presented me as the author of the statement by the National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) and fallaciously attributed quotations in the statement to me as if the reporter, Emmanuel Oladesu, described as your Group Political Editor, had an interview with me.
I strongly object to this false attribution of authorship and demand that you retract the false attribution by publishing a correction in a prominent bold, precise and compelling manner as the deceptive report was published and a complimentary copy of the correction issued to me within seven days of the receipt by you of this demand.
Kindly take note and comply accordingly.
