Lekan Fatodu and Omoyele Sowore are currently in a war of words in the media as the former accuses the SaharaReporters founder of blackmailing him and demanding a whopping sum of N100 million as bribe.
Mr. Sowore who recently returned to Lagos, Nigeria has accused, Mr. Fatodu, his friend of 20 years of corruptly benefiting from controversial administration of former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
Meanwhile, there are reports that the Nigeria Police Force has been surreptitiously mediating between both media heavyweights but Sowore has insisted on going to the court to prove his innocence.
Sowore has accused Fatodu of being part of a major plan by top government officials through the Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni to perpetrate his arrest and detention in prison cell.
Supporters of Sowore have taken to the street in Lagos to advocate for the criminal arrest by Fatodu by the police.
