On Saturday 2 December, 2017 we published a content on our news platform NaijaNews.com titled “FUPRE Vice Chancellor in multi-billion naira corruption scandal”.
The publication was a result of a piece of information forwarded to us from an anonymous source.
We acknowledge fully that the content published was not investigated and this is wrong on out part and that outright makes the publication false.
We hereby tender an unreserved apology to the vice chancellor of Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun, Delta State, Prof. Akhi Ibadode, for what ever distress the story might have caused him, we are deeply sorry and we regret our action.
We were misled by the source of the information. We have learnt our lessons in the last few days and we pledge to investigate properly next time we publish any content on our platform.
We once again apologize to Prof. Akhi Ibadode and Internal member of Council and everyone distressed by our publication.
As we have now withdrawn the report from our website, we urge readers and those interested in the report to henceforth disregard the report anywhere it is linked to us.
