The Management of the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, has raised the alarm over what it described as a plot by some elements working with desperate political forces to plant a major but false story with a fake email address bearing NAN name and imprint.
The motive behind this, according to a statement issued Thursday, is to cause serious public disaffection, chaos and unrest.
“The Management of NAN therefore wishes to alert all our subscribers and the general public to this evil plot. We wish to point out that only news and information from our official portal www.nannigerianews.com is the Agency’s authentic news service delivery,” the statement said.
The Agency also used the opportunity to put the various security agencies on notice about this plot, and urged them to assist in ensuring that it is nipped in the bud.
