It has become absolutely imperative for discerning minds and the general public to now begin to boycott Vanguard Newspaper media following the establishment of their brown envelope journalism, biased and false reportage aimed at manipulating and misleading unsuspecting public.
For the fact that Vanguard News editors and reporters has thrown caution to the wind and sold professionalism on the incitement of moneybags from the Federal government to float false news publications against IPOB is enough reason for people to begin to shun them.
It is regrettable that Vanguard News has made lies and falsehood(a habit they have inculcated in journalism), a major plank of their newspaper reporting policy that they have now relegated neutral, unbiased and genuine investigative journalism to the background.

Compromised by the Federal government with huge amount of money involved, Vanguard News agreed to ruin their hard earned trust and reputation by engaging in shady deals with the clueless and murderous Nigerian government under President Muhammadu Buhari who have lost touch to what good, credible and transparent governance should be, to now publish false information(s) to deceive gullible and unsuspecting public in a bid to stir or create crises among Biafra agitators.
The frustration and unquenchable desperation to keep the already torn and disintegrated Nigerian project together and to destabilize IPOB and their struggle for freedom has led to the evil machination of influx of lies, deceit and propaganda of media creation of nonexistent, shadowy and fictitious names, factions and splinter groups like TRIPOB, RENIPOB, Chima Phillip Effiong Osuji which were all maliciously engineered by Vanguard as the propagating tool to disseminate lies to the public in a bid to quell the overwhelming and ever-raging Biafra agitation and to also tarnish the unquestionable reputation of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is illegally detained for exercising his inalienable right to self-determination.

Not achieving that, they recently reported that Nnamdi Kanu is addressed in Kuje prison as “His Excellency,” and that he parades as the “President of Biafra,” moving with entourage.
As ridiculous and laughable as this could sound, it only ends up exposing the low, immoral and unprofessional standard which floaters of Vanguard Newspaper has reduced themselves to.

This is just reminiscent of their creation of fictitious, unscrupulous and dubious characters and groups claiming on the pages of Vanguard newspapers to have sacked Nnamdi Kanu as the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and now appointed anti-Biafra saboteurs like Charles Okah and Dozie Ikedife as leaders of IPOB even when it is certain to people that these dubious characters have been running from pillar to post in their insatiable quest for mundane wealth.
Since Vanguard/Vagabond propagators has vowed to neglect professionalism and continue spreading falsehood, it is therefore, no longer a reliable news source and should not be taken seriously by people.
The philandering owner of Vanguard Newspaper, Sam Amuka-Pemu has been found wanting in the moral gradient. His incurable infidelity has found him to severally commit adultery and sometimes, eloping with prostitutes both in public and private places including his addiction to smoking and alcoholic drinking to stupor. His nonchalance attitude in ensuring true and credible news reportage has made him and his staff in Vanguard Newspaper solicit brown envelopes from corrupt government officials and unruly Nigerian politicians to write news to their favour.

In all this, it is no longer in doubt that news sourced from these bunch of rogues cannot be ingested nor accepted. The public should henceforth take whatever illusion they churn out with a pinch of salt since they have sacrificed the trust and credibility posed on them, on the alter of ill-material wealth sourced from corrupt politicians.
Credible news sources have always maintained that misleading the unsuspecting public through false news reporting could be detrimental to the stability of the people of the society and Vanguard have not accepted this fact and thus soiling its reputation and bringing morality, discipline and professionalism to naught.

The manner by which Vanguard or rather, Vagabond newspaper had reported their news shows that obviously they know nothing about what an investigative journalism entails. I am of the view and opinion that a corrupt country with corrupt media houses can never escape damnation because even the public that is supposed to fight corruption are being corrupted by the corrupt media. And so fighting corruption makes it so much difficult for the government and media because it will fight back at them.
Vanguard editors and reporters seems to forget that government is transient; they come and go but a corrupt media house whose reputation has been rubbished and bastardized remains almost forever and will be very difficult to be accepted by the general public. This is apparently what they failed to consider before collecting moneybags from Buhari.

IPOB is well-grounded in media and there is a need for media houses to always scrutinize news or be cautious of news they receive aimed at tarnishing their image because if this is not considered, it could backfire on them. Therefore it is of essence for media houses to always consult sanctioned and approved IPOB spokespersons to get their own views on information(s) before rushing to publish such news so as to avoid bringing damaging effects to such media houses.
As for the Federal government, we know Buhari has been ever desperate and frustrated, and that explains his reason in exploring every means in his capacity to cover up the fact that Nigeria is falling and breaking into pieces and the Biafran nation on the other hand is fast approaching and cannot be stopped or derailed.

I therefore, urge the Federal government to accept the fact that Biafra is an ideology that cannot be defeated as no amount of lies, intrigues, blackmail and media onslaught against IPOB and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, would destabilize or weaken the justified struggle for freedom and independence.
It is much better for them to begin now to chart a peaceful and genuine course to solve the Biafra question as everything done to kill the Biafran spirit has apparently failed and hasn’t materialized positively. They may continue to illegally detain Nnamdi Kanu but that in any way will not stop or whittle down the Biafra struggle, it will only make it more pronounced and recognized. Let them take heed now, lest they continue to fall.
