Dele Momodu had tweeted earlier;
“Adeleke family accounts frozen; source of information unimpeachable. I repeat, the accounts of Adeleke’s family were FCMB Frozen….. you heard me? FCMB”
However after the EFCC released a statement, stating that there was no truth in the report, Dele Momodu tweeted;
“When news of the freezing of family accounts of the Adelekes was going viral, The Boss made a few calls to those who should be in the know and our source confirmed the story and even mentioned the accounts were in FCMB. We hereby withdraw it with sincere apologies…Some Nigerians on social media reacted to this turn of news from Dele Momodu and journalism as a whole.
“Journalists must still trust their sources no matter the risk of error… No human is above mistakes. Only those who managed nothing in their lives are always perfect…”
