As part of its efforts to change the paradigm in the practice of journalism in Nigeria, the Civic Media Lab hosted the Fisayo Soyombo journalism Masterclass on Undercover Reporting.

The event which featured several practicing journalists from several media organisations in Lagos is the first in monthly series planned by the lab.

Award-winning Fisayo Soyombo, a renowned investigative reporter and current managing editor of Sahara Reporters took participants through a highly intensive and interactive session on the intricacies of Undercover reporting.

He shared insights based on his experience on the field. He also warned journalists must not engage in a story for the sake of vendetta or witch-hunting rather, but for the public good.

Seventeen journalists participated in the class and are expected to pitch their story ideas, succesful entries will be funded by the Civic Media Lab.
