Sahara Reporters publisher Yele Sowore has responded to the news of the lawsuit filed against him by the founder of Mountain of Fire Ministries (MFM) Daniel Olukoya for publishing malicious articles about him and his church.
In an official statement released via Sowore’s Facebook page, the presidential aspirant revealed that Olukoya had “gone bunkers” after he (Sowore) refused to attend the meeting he (Olukoya) requested for.
Alongside his claim, he shared a screenshot of the WhatsApp chat between himself and a University of Lagos (UNILAG) alumni official, Aaron Akinloye who he said was sent by Olukoya to request for the meeting.
“Nothing To Worry About! Earlier this Year This Same “Pastor” And GO Olukoya Sent A UNILAG Alumni Official, Aaron Akinloye To Ask For A Meeting Between Him, The New Vice Chancellor Of UNILAG, Prof. Toyin Ogundipe And Myself, Aaron Claimed He (Olukoya) Was Doing Wonders For UNILAG And Wanted Me To Stop SaharaReporters From Negative Reporting Against Pastor Olukoya, I Refused! I Told Aaron I am Only Interested In Meeting Prof. Ogundipe To Discuss The Unjust Rustication Of Femi Adeyeye (A Student Activist Who Was Rusticated For Two Years Over His Criticisms Of The UNILAG Senate On Facebook) Since I Rejected A Meeting With Olukoya, The GO has Gone Bunkers Threatening Brimstone And Fire. I Am Not Surprised His Forum-Shopped To Uyo To Find A Judge Willing To Do His Bidding (Maybe). However, No One Should Be Worried, These Fakes Will Meet Their Waterloo Someday Soon In A New Nigeria.They Will Gang Up Left, Right And Center But Nothing Can Stop An Idea Whose Time Has Come”!
