Retraction of Publications and Apology to Messrs Farouk Adamu Aliyu, Habibu Aliyu and Isah Dogonyaro
On the 8th of June, 2015 and 21st of July, 2015, we published two opinion articles purportedly written and sent to us for publication by one M. M. Firdausi. The two opinion articles titled “The Hidden Corrupt Chameleon In EFCC By MM, Firdausi” and “Why EFCC Management Must Be Investigated And Prosecuted Now By MM, Firdausi” made allegations against certain individuals namely Honourable Farouk Adamu Aliyu, Mallam Habibu Aliyu and Mallam Isah Dogonyaro, particularly regarding corruption and illegal accumulation of wealth. These concerned individuals have brought to our attention, the fact that the allegations against them as contained in the two publications are not only false, but sponsored to tarnish their image.
Although, opinion articles are solely the views of the writer and does not necessarily reflect our views or that of any of our associates, we have taken it upon ourselves to accept responsibility for the errors contained in the publications.
In this light, we tender an unreserved apology to Honourable Farouk Adamu Aliyu, Mallam Habibu Aliyu and Mallam Isah Dogonyaro for the information contained in the publication and the damages it may have cause to their reputation and personality.
We also want to use this opportunity to apologise to other individuals that were mentioned in the publications who may also have been falsely accused in the opinion articles. Although, none of these individuals save the three persons earlier mentioned approached us to denounce the allegations made against them in the publications, we find it expedient to also issue an apology to them since the denial of the allegations by Honourable Farouk Adamu Aliyu, Mallam Habibu Aliyu and Mallam Isah Dogonyaro.
The publications in questions have been taken down and deleted from our database.
