BUSTED: Fake CNN reporter arrested in Bayelsa

The Chairman of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Bayelsa
State, Comrade Tare Akono, has apprehended and handed over to the
Department of State Service (DSS) a 36years old man identified as Paul
Yempe over his false claim to be a Correspondent to the Cable News
Network (CNN) in the Niger Delta region.
According to the SSS, the fake CNN reporter was arrested with an
Identification Card of the Rivers State Broadcasting Corporation known
as Radio Rivers and a fake Identification card of the CNN.
It was gathered that the fake journalist was arrested in the office of
the Commissioner for Energy, Barr. Akio Francis last Thursday.
The arrest, it was gathered, was made possible due to the coincidental
presence of the NUJ chairman, Tare Akono at the Commissioner's Office.
The suspect, according to a security source, had allegedly swindled
some of the state officials.
