The Rivers state Government has condemn Sahara Reporters over the audio recording of Governor Nyesom Wike allegedly threatening to kill an INEC official.
The Rivers stated government through the Commissioner of Information, Austin Tam-George called the recording a technological contraption.
Tam-George described the reports as false, adding that Sahara Reporters has been known for its misleading reportage.
He Said “We categorically deny these latest allegations as a sick fabrication, an outright lie.
“Governor Wike never made any contact with INEC officials, in person or by telephone.
“Saharareporters.com is the online propaganda bullhorn of the All Progressives Congress (APC). Their publications are typically false, and the writers are professional hawkers of fiction.
“No one would have thought that the APC and its cowardly media allies would resort to an audio impersonation of Governor Nyesom Wike, using a voice changer technology.
“The voice changer technology is often used by teenagers mainly in South Korea and Japan to launch innocent technological pranks at each other, mainly for laughs.
“The use of such a technology to blackmail a governor is a new criminal low for the APC, a party already widely discredited for its addiction to falsehood.
“The APC and Saharareporters are inmates in the prison of their own lies. We reject the latest blackmail by the APC.”
