A popular Social Media Commentator and Columnist, Lekan Fatodu, has declared the Publisher of a controversial online portal, Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, wanted, for not only trying to blackmail him, but also demanding money from Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Fatodu, was reacting to Sahara Reporters’ allegation, that Senator Saraki paid the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Danladi Umar, $2 million, to get a favourable judgement, in his false assets declaration case.
The exclusive piece sent to Post-Nigeria unedited reads:
“Country of contradictions – It’s only in NIGERIA that a NOTORIOUS BLACKMAILER will be FRUSTRATED that a WRONGDOER is not doing the RIGHT THING. Just imagine, SOWORE is FRUSTRATED that SARAKI is free from his trial – a curious case of a POT calling a KETTLE BLACK.
“Can SOWORE SWEAR on his late father’s grave; MR . DAVID OMOREMILEKUN SOWORE, who died in 2005, and whose FUNERAL I contributed the HIGHEST MONEY to so SOWORE, being the FIRST CHILD, could be able to bury his father; that he didn’t demand a BRIBE from me?
“Yet, with all I did for SOWORE OMOYELE for over 20yrs, including FUNDING the “Honeymoon” of he and his wife in 2004 in Nigeria (when SOWORE first came with the Naija lady in America to Nigeria), SOWORE still THREATENED and BLACKMAILED me with malicious FAKE NEWS because I didn’t succumb to his demand of 100 Million Naira from the fictitious N500 Million which he LIED that I collected from the NSA money .
“SOWORE still THREATENED me over the PHONE that the EFCC was after me that he only BEGGED THEM to CALM DOWN that we were friends and that I should respond to his DEMAND (the 100 Million Naira) quickly so the EFCC wouldn’t pick me up. Even though I told him that I was ready to face the EFCC, SOWORE was still persistent with his callous DEMAND.
“I’ve given some of these evidences to the Police and MR. FEMI FALANA (SAN) whose name SOWORE was dropping when I got him ARRESTED in JANUARY (HIS 1ST ARREST SINCE HE STARTED HIS SAHAREPORTERS).
“Interestingly, I ran into MR. FEMI FALANA at the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja, when I landed in Abuja last week. I will give more details on this brief encounter with MR. FALANA in subsequent posts.
