Our attention has been drawn to a misleading headline in the Osun Defender posted online on April 17, 2014, as Breaking News, to the effect that “Another delegate dies at the National Conference.”

Although the body of the story is a fair representation of the incident that happened on the evening of Tuesday, April 15, 2014; the headline is completely misleading and does not even reflect the body of the story as published by Osun Defender.

The delegate in question slumped on his way out of the Conference Secretariat after the day’s plenary and was immediately rushed to the hospital where he was immediately attended to and subsequently put on bed rest. His condition has since stabilised.
