Online investigative newspaper debuts

An online investigative newspaper, Untold, has debuted. The newspaper is published by JADES Communications Limited, an Information Technology and Media Company. 

A statement by its Editor-in-Chief, Adejuwon Soyinka, yesterday said it launched the investigative news medium after realising that the online media landscape “is totally devoid of a truly investigative news publication wholly devoted to serving the readers with news behind the news.”

The statement reads: “And this is exactly where Untold comes in. Served on an aesthetically appealing web platform, easily accessible at, the publication employs investigative journalism skills to take on issues that affect every day lives of the people and expose the facts and news behind the news.

Untold is poised to go beyond the usual to serve news stories that traditional news media and other online news publications in Nigeria usually omit because they are too busy chasing the next breaking news.

“So when the news breaks, the Nigerian online audience, which as at the last count, stood at over 62.4 million and is reputed for being the largest in Africa, can rely on Untold news website for not only the breaking news but an exposè on why the item in the news made the headlines.

“That, is the Untold promise, it is equally what we have committed to daily serve our esteemed readers starting from September 1, 2015. Welcome on board!”

Soyinka, who also doubles as the Chief Executive Officer, JADES Communications Limited, is a multiple award-winning journalist who has to his credit not less than 10 Nigerian Media Merit Awards (NMMA) and a few others, including the Diamond Award for Media Excellence (DAME) and the Wole Soyinka Prize for Investigative Journalism. He was until recently the Deputy General Editor, TELL Magazine; Editor of TELL’s web publication, and member of the magazine’s editorial board.
