JACKSON UDE: THE FACE OF A BLACKMAILER
More facts are emerging on the true identity of Mr. Jackson Ude of Pointblank News. Few weeks 9jaconnect did an exclusive on his blackmailing activities. Like a leopard Jackson Ude who is a school drop cannot change.
9jaconnect has it on good authority that the refusal of Abia State Government to approve Jackson proposal for retainer-ship for five million naira (#5 million) per quarter is one of the major reasons he vowed to blackmail Governor T.A. Orji’s person and administration on his sub standard news site.
Having found out that Abia State Government is not succumbing to his blackmail tactics, he aligned with a former Abia State Governor, who owns The SUN Newspapers to tarnish the efforts of Governor T.A Orji.
9jaconnect authoritatively learnt that, some State Governors in the South-South and the North are tired of Jackson’s antics despite the fact that he is on their pay role. An aide of one of the Governors in the North complained that despite the fact that they pay him an undisclosed amount per quarter, Jackson will always surprise him by writing bad stories about the governor, all in a bid to request for more money.
As it is, the Governor has set up a trap to expose him and his gang, made up of other guys who run some news sites designed to blackmail Nigerian politicians. It would be recalled that Jackson who is the arrow-head of the syndicate escaped arrest, recently when he blackmailed Hon. Uche Ekwunife of Anambra State who is a member of the House of Representatives.
Jackson was lured by Hon. Uche Ekwunife to come and pick some amount of money which he demanded in order not to publish a story against the former Governorship aspirant of APGA.
Jackson sent one of his boys to go and collect the money but luck ran out on him as he was arrested by the police and paraded before newsmen. Sahara reporters carried that story for many months .We gathered that Jackson pleaded for Sahara reporters to remove the story but the editor who is quite apprehensive of Jackson’s blackmail tactics refused, having warned him to desist from such disgraceful act.
As it is, the story is all over the town about Jackson’s survival tendencies.
We will publish Jackson’s proposal to Abia State Government when the need arises
