SAHARA REPORTERS JOURNALISM OF GOSSIP AND PERSECUTION

SAHARA REPORTERS JOURNALISM OF GOSSIP AND PERSECUTION
Article Written by Ifeanyi Chijioke
(For Family Writers)


In my last column on this topic, I wrote and open letter to Sahara reporters, I submitted my investigative facts and thus no one could deny Sahara reporters effort as a paid media to nail innocent Kanu and perverse justice. I have only received praises for an effort on course to critically impact true and quality journalism from Nigerians.  Before I go on, I will like to set the records straight. Nnamdi Kanu has not killed anyone neither has anyone killed for him, Nnamdi Kanu's IPOB have been law-abiding with praises from all angle even in the face of provocations and civilian massacre of her members. Nnamdi Kanu who lives in London, I wonder where Sahara reporters got search warrant to search his home and found ammo and guns they reported. There is a conspiracy to frame IPOB as a terrorist organization and cause undue character assassination of her leader Kanu.  Sahara reporters spearhead this with other paid Nigerian media houses.

Meanwhile, I commend them for their effort in nailing past regime which they perceived to be corrupt. However, a new regime has taken over- yet they still fight the past regime when much work is needed on this new regime. They have turned puppets and media warriors of Buhari, this is purely an unpatriotic act of persecution that must be called to order, being media prosecutor of a tyrant. They must face the reality and forfeit sheer hatred of Jonathan's government because it has gone.

The hatred has not made Sahara reporters Buhari's media warrior alone but persecutors and prosecutors, enforcer of illegality and character assassins. If Sahara reporters believe that dictatorship is the best for Nigeria hence does the dirty works of a dictator, by rebellious report on people opposed in one way or another to enable easy imprisonment or murder of them by TyrantBuhari. In light of this, they try to justify the dictatorial acts of Buhari through propaganda against Kanu, IPOB etc.

There have been gossip and persecution by Sahara reporters than journalism; I will kindly cite few gossips that really stroke the cord for this piece. Buhari vehemently disobeyed court orders, voiced his resolve to kill the judiciary and dictate who to release or not, who to kill or spare with rule of law trampled, this all in effort to murder or illegally imprison Kanu. Until Alison Madueke was reportedly arrested by Buhari, sahara who never reported her travel schedules floated one on how she intended to run away. Olisa metuh was arrested the news of his intended escape was floated by you.

Fami fani-kayode is on the list and hopefully you are preparing them for the gossip of his planned escape before arrest, kindly tell us where FFK is going to go now he has not been arrested. You deceive gullible people into hating their own; presenting victims of a dictator as though they were caught fleeing. To Fami Fani-kayode, Metuh and others, it's important to note that Kanu was arrested for criticisms of Buhari and his government, they have enjoyed democracy all along but with the emergence of TyrantBuhari, there is need to seal lips or face tyranny and jail. It is a pity that the judiciary has been subdued that even court orders are secured for purpose of injustices. There is need to submit to this emerging dictatorship  because the press that should fight this war, now fine tune and promote tyranny, Sahara reporters has murdered journalism. There is significant threat on democracy from Buhari, court orders are not obeyed, the judiciary is being intimidated and subdued, the excessiveness of the executive is obvious and the constitution is violated. In the face of this evil, Sahara reporters have chosen to gossip about IPOB and how gun is being brought to IPOB meetings and how radio Biafra transmitter was mounted. One would begin to ask what journalism is all about to Sahara reporters. The gossip and unprofessionalism is alarming that it woke my sleeping pen,


ALSO READ SAHARA REPORTERS CONTRAVENTION OF PRESS CREDIBILITY

Justice should be the banner of journalism and here I seek to teach them how to create a better world. Journalists have a lot before them, this moment in Nigeria, the need to avert this looming war and find solution to Biafra agitation, the need to reduce the tyranny of former dictator we thought had repented, the need to sustain democracy and rule of law Buhari is killing and the need to logically sue for peace through referendum or dialogue for a way forward. Disappointedly, Sahara reporters have failed woefully to be professional journalists, instead they have chosen to be gossipers and media warriors of a dictator, gossiping from one end to another in what holds no water neither contributes anything positive to the polity, It should be on record that this paid media firm has lost focus and now serves as a puppet media that promotes dictatorship that will neither profit anyone.

 Buhari's violation of the constitution of your country might seem like nothing because Nnamdi Kanu is seen as an enemy that should be illegally jailed or murdered. The bane of man is acceptance of evil that is upon another man, but with time, the tyrant will be fully fledged and the monster rearing out its ugly head now will devour everyone or lead everyone into untold anarchy.  Re-channel the time for gossip and persecution, put more time in securing lawful state, in pushing for the observance of rule of law that every man might be protected by law. IPOB is a lawful organization that has never killed or killed for, broke Guinness world record of hosting peaceful protest in most countries and have most disciplined members. Finally, when IPOB chooses to take up arms, the world will know and it shall never be done in secret. As of now, IPOB will continue to peacefully and lawfully agitate for Biafra until all peaceful options are exhausted. Save your gossip for the reality and save your irrelevant stories that divert attention instead face the war against the tyrant and disobedience of court orders which is rather unhealthy for the society and the world at large.
