Sahara Reporters apologises Over Afenifere/Prophet story

Sahara Reporters have apologized up over news story where Afenifere spokesman compared the ordeal of Sunday Igboho to that of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Many Muslims were offended over the story and hit the social media to campaign that Muslims unfollow Sahara Reporters. NEWISSUES had earlier reported that some Muslims called to complain and asked Sowore to tender an apology.

BELOW is statement from SAHARA REPORTERS

On Monday, July 26, 2021, we published a story titled, ‘Igboho Is Like Prophet Mohammed Who Fled Mecca For Media Over Persecution—Afenifere’. 

We apologise to all those who feel hurt by the report. As a media platform, we report on events as they occur. We understand that some people who read the report did not understand that it did NOT emanate from SaharaReporters but was a report distilled from a statement released by Afenifere, a socio-cultural organisation. We assure our esteemed readers and followers that it was not our intention to denigrate the Islamic faith and Prophet Muhammad as we hold all faiths in high regard. We thank you for your feedback.
