BREAKING: Sahara Reporter’s journalist Kayode caught inciting Hausas against Igbos with fake pics
Sahara Reporter’s journalist Kayode Ogundamisi, also known as Oluwakayode Ogundamisi, was yesterday exposed for peddling images of battered and bloody men claiming that the men were Hausa men attacked during the Biafra protest in Port Harcourt, Rivers State yesterday. It turns out these images were actually from the mayhem that took place in Wukari, Taraba State after the controversial ruling that saw sacking of Governor Darius Ishaku.
Some popular bloggers took to the social media platform, Facebook, expressing their shock, condemnation, and disgust at Ogundamisi’s immature, insensitive, and deadly attempt to cause an ethnic blood bath.
One blogger by the name of Ifeyinwa China Onyeabo has this to say:
“(15). Is this a picture of release Nnamdi protest or a picture of the killings happening in TARABA?
(16). Is this not the same way you labelled 1966 coup as Igbo coup to instigate violence?
(17). Now it has dawned on you that a lot of people have bought into your GO HOME message and now agitating to GO HOME
(18). You do not want that but then you needed them harmed having noticed that their protest is not bloody?
(19). You have yearned for blood for days which did not happen
(20) so you cook up an incident that happened in TARABA and labelled it Biafrans killing HAUSAs
(21) Does that area look like Diobu, where HAUSA people live in your stupid eyes?”
Another blogger by the name of Ken Agala said this:
“For those who live in Ph, did the Biafra protesters attack Hausa communities with machetes yesterday? I didn’t hear of this until one Oluwakayode Olumide Ogundamisi posted pictures of people soaked in blood and the pictures are seriously being shared on social media.
Its instructive to know that this same character a few years ago posted a picture of Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, Alhaji Asari Dokubo and Rex Anighoro where he alleged that Rex was the late Muhammed Yusuf, founder of Boko Haram. He made this post at a time when some section of the media were alleging that President Jonathan and some Niger Deltans were behind Boko Haram.
The truth is that some people on social media are actually more divisive instigate more violence than the likes of Nnamdi Kanu.”
Dressman Preye had this to say about the Sahara Reporters affiliate:
“Ogundamesi dey UK dey share pictures just to instigate more counter violence attacks.”
Habila Peter said:
“And DSS won’t deem it fit to arrest such individuals cos this individual is acting their script.”
Many Nigerians, both at home and diaspora, are calling for his arrest and that he pulls the mischievous images down to avoid unnecessarily heating up the polity and giving the current administration more problems on its hand.
some other report says
This actually happened in Taraba state
It is now evident that indeed Yorubas are blackmailers. Yoruba’s are professionals in blackmail using their media coverage. When some people say they hate Yorubas they must have a reason. It will be recalled that this same thing happened around 1967 when yorubas used the media as a weapon of blackmail. Yoruba’s has been circulating the below pictures that IPOB attacked other ethnic nationalities whereas after so much investigation the said incidence in this picture happened in Taraba state.
This same blackmail was reported in Sahara reporters. Our people should be weary of Yourbas , They are cowards, they can’t fight, All they do is blackmail; They want Oduduwa but they don't have the ball to fight for it. They love taking advantage of every situation using their powerful media blackmail. Yorubas supported Buhari hoping that Buhari will die soon so that Osibanjo will take over leadership. Beware of Yorubas.
Ifeyinwa Vivian Okeke: Am in Port Harcourt, nobody is attacking hausa Fulani, rather it is IPOB members that are being threatened and attacked with both teargas and gun
