Sun Newspaper sacks Deputy MD and several Senior Managers, AIT Sacks “300 Staff” Nationwide

The management of the Sun Newspapers has sacked its top hands ‘including Deputy Managing Director, Steve Nwosu.

Others affected are the Editor of the Sunday title, Fatai Oladehinde; Ikenna Emehu; Editor, Sporting Sun, John Joshua Akanji; Yinka Fabowale; and Emeka Okoroyanwu.

A senior staff of the Editorial Department, Bolaji Tunji, was said to have resigned before the sack letters were handed out.  It was gathered several other staffers were equally affected in the exercise the management said aimed at repositioning the company.

The mass sack was reportedly directed by its Publisher and former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu.

The management of the African Independent Television, AIT, has also sacked at least 300 of its staff.

According to reports, the sack took place today and its believed to have been directed by its owner Raymond Dokpesi who allegedly signed the letters for the disengaged staff.

The exercise was said to have been done to allow a repositioning of the media organisation.  AIT, which is part of the DAARS Communications Limited, owes backlog of staff salaries which some put at between five to 13 months.

This comes barely 24-hours after The Sun newspapers purged several of its staff, including senior editorial members.
