Sowore, Sahara Reporters’ Media War On Nigerian Senate Takes Ludicrous Turn

The campaign of calumny embarked upon by Sahara Reporters and its publisher Omoyele Sowore, on the Nigerian Senate, took a ludicrous turn on Tuesday afternoon, after the media house published a report from an anonymous lady, about the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu having a mistress.

Recall that in recent times, the popular online news portal has attacked series of senators, with accusations ranging from forged certificates, possession of monies stolen from Bureau De Change operators, false declaration of assets, inflation of prices of cars, etc.

Most recently, the highly publicized certificate saga of Senator Dino Melaye was spearheaded by them, which culminated in the Senate inviting the Vice Chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University, who then cleared the senator. After Senator Melaye, Sowore and his media house’s anti-Senate campaign shifted to Senator Andy Ubah, who they accused of lying about the school he attended.

Like a pendulum, the attack on Senators which began with the media house’s campaign that Senate President Bukola Saraki did not honestly declare his assets, swung back to him,with Sahara Reporters insisting again that the N310million stolen from a Bureau De Change operator, was owned by the Senate President.

Tuesday’s report on Senator Ekweremadu having a mistress took the media campaign to a highly laughable level as there are no morality clauses stopping Senators from having mistresses.

Nigerians have been reacting to the publication on Ekweremadu and below, we bring you some of the comments on that publication by Sahara Reporters:
