Jorotom fights CNO publisher dirty over failed attempt to blackmail BOT Treasurer
Nigerian Concord Newspaper
The immediate past chairman of the Imeko Cathedral Building Committee, Superior Evangelist John Rotimi Omotosho (Jorotom) is presently fighting the Editor-in-chief of Celestial News Online (CNO), Mr. Alonge Michael, dirty over the huge funds he paid to the media outfit to blackmail the current members of the CCC Board of Trustees.
Nigerian Concord’s investigation indicated that Jorotom’s decision to fight the online journalist who had helped him to write fake and negative reports about the BOT members especially its Treasurer, Superior Evangelist Pius Olarewaju, was as a result of Alonge’s stand to stop the blackmail, an action which did not go down well with the former Building committee chairman.
This newspaper gathered that Jorotom who is presently in a financial scandal gave the sum of N13 Million to the CNO publisher in three installments to help him launder his image and as well ruin the integrity of Otunba Olarewaju.
Jorotom was quoted as saying several times that his corrupt acts would soon be exposed if he didn’t act fast to tarnish the fast-growing profile of Olarewaju, the founder of the CCC, Omo Alade Alaafia Parishes Worldwide.
According to our dependable sources, the N13 million was given to the publisher as bribe when it became obvious to Jorotom and his accomplices that the new BOT members were out to expose all the corrupt practices which took place under the previous Building Committee.
Findings showed that Omotosho embezzled the several hundreds of millions Naira which his committee got within the thirteen years he spent as its chairman. The embezzled funds were meant to build and complete the Imeko Cathedral.
This newspaper understands that plans by Jorotom and his cronies to blackmail Olarewaju with various fake fraud allegations through Celestial News Online was a way to conceal all the huge funds which they stole during the time they were saddled with the responsibility of building the Imeko Cathedral.
However, it was gathered by Nigerian Concord that the Editor-in-chief of the online journal had recently informed his pay master, Omotosho, of his decision not to help him write anything to blackmail the BOT Treasurer and his colleagues again.
This development it was gathered didn’t go down well with Jorotom who was quoted as saying that Alonge Michael must return his N13 million or have him to contend with.
Concord gathered that more than eight different telephone conversations had taken place between Jorotom and Alonge within the last three days.
It was also gathered that the publisher has threatened to expose Jorotom and how he contracted and induced him financially to help him blackmail Olarewaju maliciously if he insists that he should refund the N13 million he was given as a bribe for the illicit act.
