Metro PUNCH Threatens to Sue Vanguard, ThisDay and The Sun Newspapers


Social Member
The PUNCH newspaper has threatened to sue the Vanguard, Sun and ThisDay newspapers over a fake advert carried by the papers on different days.

The aggrieved news agency has given the papers five days to tender a public apology which must be published prominently on their front page or face a court case.

According to Linda Ikeji, the issue started when a faceless group called 'Agents for Collective Transparency' which is openly anti-Jonathan 'photoshopped the cover pages of Punch newspapers and put copies of the pictures in advert form and gave Thisday, Sun & Vanguard to publish as advert, which the papers did.'

PUNCH newspaper says this move has affected its image of political neutrality and that the photoshopped headline which was a GEJ-antagonistic post was never published on their own paper as they were fake stories.

So far, Vanguard, ThisDay and The Sun are yet to respond.
