Talk about killing an insect with a sledge hammer.
Laolu Akande, SSA Media and Publicity to the Vice President went all out to discredit thetrentonline but ended up with pie on his face.
Reacting to a September 16 story by thetrentonline.com entitled “Osinbajo Insulted By El Rufai, Walks Out On President Buhari (DETAILS)” Laolu Akande went on the offensive branding thetrentonline and its Managing Editor Aziza Uko, paid mouthpieces of immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan.
The piece by Akande was published on the official FG website Here but was taken out following online backlash especially on twitter.
According to Akande “why is thetrentonline committed to falsehood, ill will and this desperate act of wickedness? Is it because the owner of the website, Aziza Uko Douglas, is a paid crony of former President Goodluck Jonathan who is an active client of her Ziza Media Group?”
Most of the comments were directed at Laolu Akande like this one
and this one too
But a few others came to his defence attributing the badly written piece to Akande’s staff.
