NNAMDI KANU’S ABDUCTION IN HIS RAIDED RESIDENCE BY NIGERIAN ARMY AND NIGERIAN MEDIA PRESENT DECEPTION: A MORAL AND PROFESSIONAL FICKLENESS FROM NIGERIAN MEDIA
By Mazi Onyebuchi Eze
For Family Writers
It could be recalled that few months ago, Family Writers Press published an article where we said verbatim that the reason for general under development in Nigeria is purely due to the professional and moral fickleness and around shameless conducts of Nigerian media. This is because any society where there is no media outlets which abide by the tenets and ethics of media profession, such society is doomed and have no future. Nigerian society is likened to that society which has no future because Nigeria media outlets are disgrace to Nigerians in information dissemination.
It is good that Biafra media outlets such as Radio Biafra London, Family Writers Press and many others had been vindicated by observers as we continue to describe Nigeria media outlets as “Brown Envelop” journalism. Nigerian media houses has descended into infamy because you hardly separates between truth and lies in Nigeria media information dissemination because it is built on write and collect brown envelop pattern of journalism.
Nigerian media houses are presently opening up the rot in them for Nigerians, international community and the world at large to see their wickedness as they are gradually reneging from their widely reported Nigeria military siege and invasion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s home where Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was abducted by Nigeria army and taken to unknown destination even though the army is playing by claiming that Mazi Kanu is not in their custody. The world must recall that in the bid for Nigerian media houses to make the world know that the overzealous Nigeria Army has conquered Nnamdi Kanu and decimated his IPOB, Nigerian media houses widely reported the military invasion and barbarity of the army in the compound of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which took place on September 14, 2017. Chief among the media houses in Nigeria which reported the evil of Nigeria Army in the peaceful compound of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu are Channels Television, Vanguard Newspaper, Guardian Newspapers, Naij, TheNation Newspaper, Punch Newspaper and many others.
Nigerian media will descend into the valley of infamy as they have obviously mortgaged their professional ethics just because of “Brown envelop” and “Ghana Must Go” bags of money from Defense HQs, DSS and Nigerian Government as the trio may be walking on tight rope at the moment due to the extra-judicial blunder and court contempt committed by them in attacking Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s home in Umuahia and whisking away Nnamdi Kanu to unknown destination. Nigerian media widely reported the declaration of Nigerian that they have defeated IPOB even though Nigeria army was just killing innocent and harmless IPOB members without any retaliation. Nigerian media reported that petrol bomb was gotten in the compound of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by Nigeria army who invaded the compound just to prove that Nigerian army officers deployed in Umuahia indeed invaded Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s residence.
With the shameless denial lately by Nigerian Army that they were not the armed forces which invaded the compound of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu even as the activities of Nigerian army was properly covered and documented by IPOB intelligence unit and IPOB eagle-eye media team, any reasonable person in the world can now understand that indeed Ozubulu Church massacre was actually carried out by Nigerian army which is good at committing crimes and denying same. But as for Nigerian army hierarchy, IPOB does not have much to talk about them, they are going to meet with IPOB erudite legal Team in court come October 17th. The people of concern are the media practitioners in Nigeria which have sold their conscience to the devil as they always side with the evil doers of the corridor of Nigerian government just because of huge financial inducement from Aso Rock. Nigerian media houses have sacrificed the ethics in journalism which includes truthfulness, accuracy, neutrality, investigations and transparency in information dissemination since the tyrannical regime of Gen Muhammadu Buhari set in.
For Nigerian media houses to begin to renege in their widely reported military siege and invasion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s home on September 14th as they are now fabricating lies against IPOB and supporting Nigeria Army officers to deny the invasion of the residence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is the reason why Nigerians should completely boycott Nigeria media outlets because they are leading Nigerians to darkness and falsehood. The publications of Nigerian media houses where they are now supporting the broad daylight lies of Nigerian army is the height of professional and moral fickleness in the Nigerian media of shame. If Nigerian populace are still gullible at all these caricature which is being done by media practitioners, then Nigerians are intellectually morons because all of them read the reports of military invasion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s home which they are now helping Nigeria Army to deny their recent publications.
As Nigerian media houses have shown the world that everything in Nigeria is built on lies including the media, Biafra people are not surprised by all these caricature on Nigerian media but it is good that Biafrans are now vindicated as we have constantly accused Nigeria media outlets of Brown Envelop journalism. The world could recall that the same tyranny demonstrated against IPOB members in Aba, Umuahia and Obigbo by Nigeria army which Nigerian media is shielding them from now was also tasted by Nigeria Union of journalist, Abia State office in Umuahia, yet the practitioners have not learn anything from it. Nigerians should completely boycott Nigeria media outlets because they are now source of shame and disgrace to Nigerians in information hunting and consumption. I rest my case!
