Sahara Reporters. The site has been shut down and SR believe President Obasanjo is behind the action that has been taken. If true this is more evidence that FREEDOM OF SPEECH is merely an illusion in today’s Nigeria and that the same tactics of the Obasanjo military dictatorship continued to be used today.
As you must have noticed, our dear websites: “www.saharareporters.com” + “www.saharareporter.com” + “www.saharareports.com” has been shut down.
Since we published the story effectively and undisputably linking President Obasanjo to the Andy Uba money laundering scam, he has used every means available to get back at us.
You are all aware that he has been using a lawyer based in Maryland, USA to harass our publication, but since we sent an appropriate response commensurate with his legal threat, they are possibly up to other tactics.
First, our site was shut down on the day we published the Andy Uba story for two hours.
However, we restored the site as soon as was possible.
Yesterday, just as President Obasanjo admitted to accepting close $46,000 “gift” for his Obasanjo Farms from Andy Uba And Loretta Mabinton through his “International Legal Counsel on Persoanl Matters” Mr. Kunle Fagbenle, our webhosting company complained to us that our website was ‘abusing their server and using their cpu at 100%’ and as such had to shut down SAHARAREPORTERS because it was rendering others sites on their server ‘inoperable’.
Again, these are technical jargons that points to one direction only: There is a conspiracy to put our site out of existence.
