In a petition addressed to the National president of  NUJ, and endorsed by its National Coordinator, Barr. Broderick Owamagbe Enabulele, the group recalled a plethora of libellous publications authored by John Mayaki who pride himself as Joseph Goebbels of Edo People’s Movement, alleged that “Nigerian press has been the lifeline inspiring a sense of hope to most traumatized Nigerians”.

The Benin-based group, particularly bemoaned a recent publication credited to Mayaki and titled: “Trouble in Obaseki’s illegal Assembly: Embittered Okiye threatens to shut EDHA, run abroad”.

According to Enabulele,  “the publication is one of the mischievous figment of his cruel imagination, aimed at bringing down all institutions of government in Edo State, while oiling the heartless ego of his paymaster.

“There is no single truth in this publication, other than to enthrone a perception of hate-insurgency on the part of Edo people against Edo State Government.

 “We will pledge to produce on demand, hard or soft copies of his (Mayaki) numerous diatribes and missive against Edo State Government.
