BBC Soro Soke Used Wrong Picture in its Story.
The attention of Voice of Mercy Ministries International has been drawn to the misuse of the picture of its Senior Pastor, Reverend Ojo Peters by BBC Soro Soke in a story which claimed he granted interview to the media about TB Joshua and Nnamdi Kanu.
The picture used is not that of Pastor Olatobiloba Peters of Divine Mercy Church.
Also, while Divine Mercy Church is in Illorin, Reverend Ojo Peters whose picture is used resides in Minna.
The original post by Daily Post published June 10 did not put the picture of the speaker, therefore, the Ministry sees it as mischievous that BBC Soro Soke will put in the picture of another person for a report they propotedly got from another media organization.
The use of the picture of Reverend Ojo Peters is mischievous and contrary to the ethics of journalism which states that getting factial information is sancrosant in all.
The Church wish to call on BBC Soro Soke to pull down the picture in the story and get its facts straight about the person whose name they are referring to.
The Ministry further demand that apart from BBC Soro Soke pulling down the report or get its facts right, it should publish an apology for misleading the public and render an apology to Reverend Ojo Peters whose picture was misused in an interview he did not grant or had knowledge about.
It should be on record that Reverend Ojo Peters had never in any time granted any interview either through phone or in person to any Journalist both within or outside Minna, Niger state and thus, he had not spoken about the late T.B Joshua or Nnamdi Kanu.
The Ministry has also decided to take legal action against BBC Soro Soke as it has defamed the image of its Senior Pastor.
