A popular blogger who is based in America and goes by the name Jackson Ude has incurred the wrath of the Vice President of Nigeria Prof. Yemi Osibanjo who is demanding the probe of the blogger for alledging that the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, currently facing a presidential probe panel reveqled to the investigative panel that he gave Osibanjo N4bn.
The VP has through his attorney, Bayo Osipitan, written a petition to the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu, demanding the probe of the blogger. The petition dated 8 July, 2020 titled ‘Criminal Defamation of the the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof.Yemi Osibanjo (SAN),GCON by Jackson Ude’.
Meanwhile, the special assistant to the VP , Mr Laolu Akande has debunked the stories being carried by the blogger and other social media (but rnot dambela), stated stated categorically that the VP did not receive any of such money, that the articles were defamatory and capable of bringing him to ridicule before members of the public.
Osibanjo also said Ude likened him to alleged international fraudster Ramon Abbas popularly called Hushpuppi by calling him ‘Hush-bajo’.
Whereas, recent checks show that Ude, who is based in the United states, has not relented in his tweets as he tweeted ‘ I am not afraid of Osibanjo and his minions “If he indeed wants to go to court, he needs to resign first and sue me. He can’t be VP and using state resources to intimidate the Judiciary. He cannot wave immunity that he didn’t confer on himself. Osibanjo should resign first.”
