Heads Roll at THISDAY Over Fake Oyedepo Visa News

*As Two Deputy Editors Suspended Indefinitely.

The management of THISDAY Newspapers Limited has suspended two of its deputy editors, Mr. Yemi Ajayi and Mr. Olawale Olaleye, over the story: “Drama as US Embassy Denies Bishop Oyedepo Visa,” published last Friday.

The story, which claimed that Bishop Oyedepo was denied visa by the US Embassy, was subsequently refuted by the embassy to be false.

Following the rebuttal, the newspaper management investigated the publication and found that the two deputy editors failed to follow its well established traditions of carrying out the necessary checks and confirmations expected of personnel of their status in a sensitive story of that nature.

They were, therefore, suspended indefinitely.

On his part, Bishop David Oyedepo has remained quiet and refused to comment personally on the matter neither has he responded to pleas to take THISDAY to court.

The two suspended editors attended Ogun Polytechnic as well as Moshood Abiola Polytechnic for their Higher National Diplomas and also Lagos State University (LASU) Ojo, Lagos for their Masters degrees respectively.

This will serve as lesson to other lazy journalists that never bother to investigate the source of their news before publishing.

This is really commendable....

We can't have an incompetent president and also have an incompetent journalist at the same time.

ALL stories must be verified before been dished out to the public. We must learn to do things right in this country.
