Tackling fake news: Group calls for ban, prosecution of misinforming media outlets


To combat the menace of fake news in the country, a group of Nigerian Youth under the aegis of Nigeria United Against Fake News has organized an awareness match in the country’s federal capital territory, Abuja.

The group during the march highlighted the huge role mis-information could play in causing ethnic and religious crises in the country.

Convener of the group, Mohammed Ma-ta-zu in his address questioned the rationale behind the attempt by the Media to peddle sensational reports without considering the consequences.

He thereafter called for stiffer punitive measures against such media outlets.
