NUJ moves against fake journalists in Lagos

In order to safeguard the integrity of the Journalism profession, the Lagos council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) says it has started a clampdown on fake journalists.

Mr Deji Elumoye, Chairman of the council, told the News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN) on Monday in Lagos that the union had set up a committee to tackle the problem.

He said that fake journalists, who usually extort the public, were denting the good image of the profession.

“We are doing our best to ensure that quackery is erased from journalism profession.

“In Lagos, we observe that there are a lot of fake journalists and they are always found in public places like hotels and event centres.
