The management of Osun Babes has challenged a post by a fake journalist from Imo State, who is surreptitiously peddling and circulating lies about Osun Babes FC trying to bride her way to avoid relegation by all means.
The management, in a release by the Team Manager, Tope Akinbade through the Club’s Media Officer, Oluwaseun Omolola described the write up as baseless, unfounded and blatant lie from an unrecognized author who gatecrashed into sports journalism to only run his mouth around looking for cheap popularity through unsubstantiated story.
The release said “Osun Babes FC have never and will never get involved in anything that will bring the game into disrepute.”
“The allegation by one fake journalist from Imo has no root and it’s a blatant lie. If you look at Osun Babes performance last season, we didn’t only win at home convincingly but we also recorded away points. Our loss of point at home this season has shown that Osun Babes have not been involving any act of bribery any official or influencing result of the game.
“We at Osun Babes FC don’t need to bribe our way or intimidate anybody to win matches and Bayelsa Queens is not an exemption. Bayelsa Queens are beatable and we would defeat them in today’s encounter without fear or favour.
“ We challenge the fake journalist who peddled the lies against Osun Babes to substantiate his claims by providing evidence (s). t’s just unfortunate that the field of journalism has been bastardized by some people who knows nothing about the ethics of the profession.
“We therefore call on the NFF and the NWFL to investigate where the news emanated from and get the culprit punished for peddling lies against our great and enviable club.
“We want to use this medium to reiterate that Osun Babes is a reputable club with integrity and will never do anything to bring the game into disrepute,” the statement concluded
