Magazine’s Published Article Blames This Newspaper For Alamieyeseigha’s Death

One “The Source Magazine” has lashed out a serious allegation against Premium Times.

The magazine shared a recent publication  with a Cover Story entitled: ” Alamieyeseigha: How False Story Killed Him”.

In the article, the magazine insinuated that the recent death of a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, penultimate week, was triggered by a purported story published by Premium Times that the British government made a request to the Nigerian government for the extradition of the former governor to the United Kingdom to face money laundering charges.

The magazine specifically stated: “An online portal, PREMIUM TIMES had recently rehashed its March 28, 2013 story and presented it to unsuspecting readers as fresh. A section of the traditional media also strangely keyed into the PREMIUM TIMES stale story and published it as fresh. Quoting the immediate past British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Andrew Pocock, PREMIUM TIMES had reported that the UK government was interested in extraditing Alamieyeseigha to stand trial and that a request had already been made to the federal government to that effect”.

Premium Times however denies the allegation, saying that any publication related to that issue was published in 2003.
