The appearance of two versions (across the social media) for the cover of the digital edition of the Friday August 27, 2021 edition of THISDAY newspaper, based in Lagos, Nigeria has drawn a strong repudiation of the fake version. Eniola Bello, the Managing Director of THISDAY, has issued a statement on this issue:

“The attention of the management of THISDAY has been drawn to a fake version of our digital edition making the rounds on some social media platforms.

With the headline: “Shocking: Uzodinma declares Free Marriage Between Fulani Settlers and Imo Ladies”, this fake version of our digital edition is being circulated on WhatsApp, Facebook and other social media platforms.

We wish to state that THISDAY at no time published the said story. Our lead story on Friday, August 27 was, “Buhari Elated as NNPC Breaks Jinx, Declares N287bn Profit, First in 44 Years”.

Sadly, these merchants of fake news have chosen to leverage on the credibility and integrity of THISDAY to ply their trade.

We completely reject this poor attempt by some unscrupulous people at impersonating our brand and identity in pursuit of whatever agenda they may have, by seeking to disseminate fake news to members of the public as emanating from THISDAY.

For the avoidance of doubt, readers can easily verify our Friday publication from the print edition, or online (www.thisdaylive.com). We therefore call on members of the public who may have unwittingly fell for the cloned digital copy to disregard it and treat it with the utmost contempt it deserves.

We also use this opportunity to call on security agencies to help unmask the counterfeiters behind this forgery and bring them to book.”

THISDAY newspaper was established on January 22, 1995. Nduka Obaigbena is the Chairman.
