The leader of the group, Comrade Ajibade Oyayeye in a media statement seen by News Punch said the report by Sahara Reporters on the alleged leaked bribe tape is unfounded, mischievious, biased and imbalance, negating the ethical practice of reporting.

Comrade Oyayeye specifically mentioned Mr. Omoyele Sowore, the Publisher of Sahara Reporters to always ensure a proper investigation, analysis, and balancing of a report before publication.

He said;

"There is no big deal in reporting the ills of some individuals, group or government in the society, but such report must be devoid of sentiments, witch-hunting, imbalance and mischievousness."

"I have no doubt the purported leaked audio credited to Senator Dino Melaye is not just imbalance but also mischievous. Remember Dino and Sahara Reporters are currently on warpath in series of issues. Some of the cases are in court already".

"The best practice of journalism involves balancing of reports, which means, getting both sides of parties involved in a report, but when a report is devoid of this, it's nothing but unethical imbalance, and most often mischievous."

"Sahara Reporters should learn how to be an unbiased reporter and avoid mischievousness like this Dino's", Comrade Oyayeye concluded in the statement.
