Magu’s Ordeals And Why Prophet Emmanuel Omale Should Forgive Agents Of Fake News
The story surrounding the former EFCC boss, Mr. Ibrahim Magu is no longer new, hence there is no need dissipating much energy in flogging already dead horse. And one of the biggest fake news in Nigeria today as carried by a government agency, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) is the alleged involvement of a Prophet of God, Pastor Emmanuel Omale. One wonders why a renouned government news outlet would descend so low as to engage in peddling fake news aimed at rubbishing the hard earned reputation of the man of God.
It is good news that the National Assembly is busy pushing for social media controls in Nigeria. Prophet Emmanuel Omale is not just an accidental Prophet of God, but a creation of God Almighty with special gifts. For those who know him from the Our Lady Of School, Anyigba, the current prophetic activities of Prophet Omale are not new.
There is no amount of fake news that would bring down a man born with special anointing as this.
The design of NAN is similar to the activities of Pharaoh whose purpose was to truncate God’s prophecy for humanity. Let it be known that there is no amount media abracadabra that would frustrate God’s mission. Although the man of God through his lawyer has sought the retrieval of the fake and malicious news, there is urgent need for constituted authorities to check how media houses are being used by some elements to achieve devilish personal purposes such as linking Prophet Emmanuel Omale with being used by the former EFCC boss to buy property and money laundry. It is not just ridiculous but has already put a question mark on the indictment of Magu without trial.
Yes, media trial in Nigeria is no longer news but while engaging in such dirty assignments, there are some individuals that must be spared as a result of their pedigree, and Prophet Emmanuel Omale is one of such. While the News Agency of Nigeria is yet to openly retrieve the reckless and malicious publication, the Nation Newspaper has openly tendered an apology to the respected silk, Chief Femi Falana who was also accused of collecting 28 million naira from the embattled EFCC czar. The petition from Magu to Justice Ayo Salami-led probe panel has once again reminded us on the need for the media houses to trend with caution as reputation is very key. It is shocking that the government that is calling for media censorship and control is directly guilty of the same offense.
Before now, it was widely believed that news media (social media) take the lead in spreading fake news but with a renouned media house like NAN involved in this misleading and misinformation assignment, it is obvious we have a lot of war to fight against fake news. It is on this basis that we hereby conclude that the report under reference is yet another cheap attempt by a vulnerable writer/journalist whose only aim to achieve prominence is by bringing the person of an exceptional prophet from childhood to disrepute. Consequently, we discard the report in its entirety as it is totally false and misleading. We also advise Nigerians to do same and also take this as a confirmation.
