The former presidential spokesman also asked his colleague not to exaggerate the matter beyond what it is.
There was a mild drama at the Arise TV studio after lead presenter Reuben Abati on Friday, clashed with his colleague, Rufai Oseni.
The duo were arguing over a statement about the EndSARS protest of October 20, 2021.
Oseni had during a birthday message to his colleague, Tokunbo Oyetunji, said the celebrant risked his life to cover the protest in 2021, adding that no other media house was on the street to cover the event.
Countering Oseni’s claim, Abati said it was not only Arise News that covered the protest, saying other media houses covered the protest in Lagos State.
Replying him, Oseni reiterated that no other media house was on the street, except Arise television. Abati interjected again and said other media houses covered it.
Oseni’s point was the they were on the streets covering the news. Abati didn’t agree with him.
