Why Prof. Imafidon May Sue Punch Newspaper
Days after Punch online published a story on Professor Chris Imafidon, the educationist says his lawyers are on the matter and that may be a law suit in the works for the media organisation.
Punch had said the University of Oxford disclaimed that Imafidon was a professor at the university.
The media organisation claimed that an interview with Professor Imafidon which it published had gone viral and drew questions.
It wrote: “Questions were raised by concerned members of the public after the publication of the interview.
“Local and some international media have described Imafidon as a professor at Oxford University and at other times, as a professor of University of Oxford (Keble College). However, in their responses to Saturday PUNCH’s enquiries, University of Oxford and one of its independent constituent institutions, Keble College, denied having any connection with him”.
Punch further gave evidences of its investigation to support its claims.
But the Publication seems to have painted a strange picture about the Professor and he is not happy.
After Bounce News, read the publication, it contacted the Professor and he said he would release a statement in response.
On Sunday, Professor Imafidon published a statement on his Facebook page, indicating his displeasure with the report and giving an indication that he may be filing charges.
He said the publication was an absolute falsehood that he would not be responding to.
