Uche Jombo was misquoted after offering an interview while promoting the movie, Wives On Strike and she flayed the culprit, the Punch newspapers.
Punch reported, Sunday, August, 7, with the headline that the actress said, “I have never dated anybody in Nigeria.”
In a chat which the paper had called an “exclusive” it read, “Popular Nollywood actress and producer, Uche Jombo, said before she got married five years ago, she never dated anybody that lived in Nigeria.”
Uche Jombo took to twitter to pillory the newspaper for publishing a false interview.

Newspapers should avoid writing false stories else they become doubtful source of information.
Once people begin to doubt you, you are literally finished. Stick with facts.
