Meanwhile another online platform, Tori.ng wrote that one of the girls was from Anambra State University.
Massmediang spoke with a source in the Public Relations Unit of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, (Formerly Anambra State University) who refuted the allegation that one of the girls was from Anambra State University, now Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University. The source called it fake new and the practice of junk journalism. The source said; “The person who posted the message, Uche Osefoh did not mention our institution, so how did Tori.ng get the information that one of the girls was from Anambra State University? It is completely false and an unfair way to practice journalism.”
