After an article written on Linda Ikeji’s Blog titled “LIB exclusive: Meet the owner of Instablog9ja – John Abayomi”, on November 15, 2018.
Lot of attention has being drawn to the alleged owner of Instablog9ja owner, John Abayomi.
Mr John Abayomi claimed he has since received various threats from anonymous users and his life was in danger over a misplace of identity written by Linda Ikeji’s blog.
Through the chambers of Falana and Falana, Linda Ikeji was requested to write a retraction and tender an unreserved apology within 48hours.
Yesterday 19 November, 2018, Linda Ikeji published the article titled “Retraction and correction: John Abayomi Aruleba is the owner of Instablog9ja not John Abayomi”.
She wrote :
This mistake was as a result of the exact similarities in the names of John Abayomi who is an Online Editor with Punch and another John Abayomi Aruleba who is the actual owner of Instablog9ja.
Linda Ikeji also concluded by writing, “LIB is happy to set the record straight, take full responsibility for the mix-up as we tender our unreserved apology to John Abayomi of Punch Newspapers for any inconvenience this mistake has caused”.
Finally, Linda Ikeji claims that Abayomi Aruleba (pictured above), is the owner of instablog9ja who shares the same business address as his father, Dr Aruleba owner of Aruking herbal herbs with business address in Lagos.
The fact however still remains that John Abayomi Aruleba runs Instablog9ja with his partner, Tosin Dotun Adeyemi.
