Ghen Ghen! Punch threatens to sue Vanguard,Thisday & The Sun

The Punch newspaper has threatened to sue Vanguard
newspaper, the SUN and Thisday over a fake advertorial
published on different days by the newspapers.
Punch has given the newspapers 5 days to tender a public
apology and publish it prominently in their respective
newspapers or face litigation.
Here's the genesis of the problem: A faceless group known
as 'Agents for Collective Transparency", an anti-Jonathan
group, photoshopped the cover pages of Punch newspapers
and put copies of the pictures in advert form and gave
Thisday, Sun & Vanguard to publish as advert, which the
papers did.
Punch now says it has affected their integrity which is
politically neutral. Also, the photoshopped headlines
targeted against GEJ were never published in the real Punch
newspaper, they were all fake stories. The affected
newspapers are yet to react.
