Sahara Reporters owner, Omoyele Sowore has revealed that former President Goodluck Jonathan once tried to induce him with money.
THE VENT REPUBLIC reports that Sowore in an interview with Maazi Ezeoke of Njenje Media claimed that the former Nigerian president had through his aide, Mr. Ima Niboro tried to unsuccessfully trigger his loyalty via financial inducement.
Below are excerpts from the interview:
“I never received funding from any politician. In fact, Jonathan tried to give me money through Ima Niboro his former aide when he came to New York. They said Atiku bought me a $5 million house in California. If I had any dealings with APC when they detained me don’t you think they would have put out things about me to the public as they did to Nnamdi Kanu? They would have blackmailed me. They even asked me what I wanted and I said nothing. They wanted me to apologize to Buhari so that they would let me go according to my lawyer Femi Falana. I started as a student union activist when they were distributing Peugeot 505 to the leaders.”
It remains to be seen if the camp of the former Nigerian President would respond to this very damaging allegation.
THE VENT REPUBLIC will update the public as events unfolds.
