Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore has been called a thief and blackmailer by Mr. Bamikole Omisore, aide to Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Omisore has fired back at Sowore, who had accused Saraki of bribing the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) to get a favourable ruling of his case before the Danladi Umar-led tribunal which he won yesterday, June 14, 2017.
Sowore had accused Saraki of bribing Danladi $2 million to gain victory at the tribunal in charge of his case of false assets declaration filed by the Federal Government in 2015.
Omisore said the allegations were baseless and was a crude attempt by Sowore’s Sahara Reporters media outfit to extort money from the Senate President.
The Senate President’s Senior Adviser on New Media took to Twitter to lay these accusations against Sowore.
Tweeting with his handle (@MrBanksOmishore), he said, “@yelesowore everyone knows you have strong appetite for $$$, if you had evidence of $2 million bribe, you will blow whistle.
“You are a fraud & days of fake news[are] coming to an end. Nigerians are wiser, you can’t use propaganda to extort.
“I know this is a personal loss for you. No more excuse for you to milk your pay masters to use CCT to blackmail.”
He continued, “OMOYELE SOWORE is a THIEF, BARAWO. You cannot use your platform to blackmail Saraki to get $$$[dollars].”
