A Nigerian lady, Hauwa Liman, today, decried the usage of her photos in place of the aid worker, who was executed by Boko Haram yesterday.
Since the news of the execution went viral, a lot of persons and media platforms have been talking about the deceased and sharing condolence messages.
However, some used a wrong photograph of another Nigerian who bears the same name with the victim. This made her tweet a disclaimer, noting that even though, she bears the same name as the aid worker, she is not the one who was killed and urged journalists to step up their game.
LACK OF DUE DILIGENCE
So they just Google and select any picture that suits them…
To show the news we are fed is just COPY AND PASTE..All those that posted used only these 2 pictures.
