#FakeNews: Someone is obviously trying to blackmail Sterling Bank

There’s a certain Fejiro Oliver who has published an article on Sterling Bank and its supposed inner operations here: https://www.abusidiqu.com/electing-adeyemi-odubiyi-md-shareholders-sterling-bank-perilous-journey-golgotha-fejiro-oliver/

The weird thing is, there’s another article (http://www.jalupon.com/court-remands-serial-blackmailer-in-prison-over-attack-on-sterling-bank-staff/2) showing the same guy getting arrested along with a disgruntled former employee of the bank. There’s obviously somthing fishy at play here. Is this another stunt by Fejiro to try to blackmail Sterling? Sure reads like it.

Why do we think it’s blackmail:

The guy, Fejiro runs Secret Reporters, a site known in the industry for running an ads or blackmail program. Basically, they ask to you to advertise on their site, if you don’t, they start publishing negative news.

  1. Ads or blackmail has been around the industry a long time, mostly by lower tier blogs and their partners.
  2. The article is clearly a hit piece – the focus on destroying a certain person is so obvious – obviously, they want to make the ED look bad, so he doesn’t become the MD. It is very possible that this piece is sponsored by a collaborator within the bank with interests.3. From information in the industry, the bank has placed ads on this guy’s blog before. When the PR agency discovered their numbers were padded, they stopped. This is possibly a ploy to get those ads back on the site.

My advise: Sterling Bank obviously has the most to lose, if they have a serial blackmailer on their case. They should either take proper legal action or buy ads from the guy.
