Fake Digital Edition by THISDAY Friday, August 27, 2021 in Social media traffic
The attention of THISDAY’s management has been drawn to a fake version of our digital edition circulating on certain social media platforms.
With the title: “Shocking: Uzodinma declares free marriage between Fulani settlers and Imo ladies ”, this fake version of our digital edition is being broadcast on WhatsApp, Facebook and other social media platforms.
We would like to state that THISDAY has at no time published this story. Our main article on Friday August 27 was: “Buhari delighted that NNPC is breaking Jinx, reports a profit of 287 billion naira, the first in 44 years ”.
Sadly, these fake news merchants have chosen to leverage THISDAY’s credibility and integrity to carry on their trade.
We completely reject this poor attempt by some unscrupulous people to impersonate our brand and our identity in pursuit of any agenda, seeking to disseminate fake news to members of the public as emanating from THIS DAY.
For the avoidance of doubt, readers can easily check out our Friday post from the print or online edition (www.thisdaylive.com). We therefore call on members of the public who have unwittingly fallen for the cloned digital copy to ignore it and treat it with the utmost contempt it deserves.
We also take this opportunity to appeal to security agencies to help unmask the counterfeiters behind this counterfeit and get them to book.
