Nigerian Twitter Activists Take On Ono Bello For Threatening Her Employee

Celebrity blogger, Ono Bello has been called out on Twitter for owing salaries.

 

 

 

Lagos- Celebrity blogger, Ono Bello it seems isn’t having a good time on Twitter as a number of Nigerians have taken her up on her failure to pay a particular worker, Peter Adenuga his salary for three months.

 

Concerned Nigerians took to the handle to express their displeasure after one Peter Adenuga had started a thread on how Ono Bello had owed him and was even threatening him with police arrest after some time.

 

Rather than ignore these tweets or reach out to the Mr. Adenuga, Bello rather came on Twitter to accuse Adenuga of hacking her account and refusing to return a laptop and router that she had given him to work with from home during the first phase of the Covid 19 pandemic. She even announced that she would pay Mr. Adenuga only when he turns himself in with the police at Maroko, Victoria Island to explain to the police why he had hacked her account.

 

These series of tweets earned her more flak from a number of twitter users who saw her behaviour as inhumane even as a number of former staff members came on board to attest to how she, Bello was used to hiring people, owing them for months and then frustrating them to resign from her employ. Matter of fact, one of them had accused her of slapping her because she had demanded for her salary arrears, resigning after the incident and forfeiting her pay there.

Dokubo, however faulted the attempt to use Nwoke who is only twenty years of age as some fall guy leading to his arrest and jailing.

 

Dokubo who had done this via a video, stated that she was not bothered about what went on in that video as those in the videos were adults but by the fact that the young man, Nwoke had been arrested and hailed for 12 months in a spare of two weeks for defamation of character owing to the allegation of doctoring.

 

She dismissed the allegation that Nwoke had imposed a still shot from a swimming pool to a motion shot of a sex scene into one.

 

Dokubo stated that with her wealth of experience in the film industry, she could categorically state that what the boy claimed to have done is virtually impossible as at today.

 

She did insinuate that Willie Amadi may be paying the boy to take the fall on his behalf or if he was simply intimidating the young man ,using his office to do so.

 

She  was also alarmed at the speed of the case which took two weeks to investigate, arrest, prosecute and jail him.  Advising Amadi to be honourable enough to take responsibility for.his actions.

LagosThe Lagos State Police Command  in  it’s fight against the spread of the Lagos today arrested 45 persons at a nightclub in the Maroko area of theVictoria Island axis of the state for violating Covid 19 protocols.

Nigeria’s Richest Man, Aliko Dangote Keeps Mum As Women Recount Their Numerous Sexual Escapades With Him.

Following a video posted by a lady on instagram with the account name Allarounda1 in which Nigeria’s richest man Aliko Dangote is captured lying on a sofa with a part of his buttocks been exposed in the video as he fiddled with his mobile phone, the Kano born business man has kept mum on the validity of the video which has gone viral on a number of social media networks and online mediums. 

 

The video which is a follow up to an earlier video where a restaurateur by the name Beal Lewis had come out to claim that she had an affair with the business man who in turn broke her heart.

 

The restaurateur had shared photos of them both as well as a post where she claimed she had dated Dangote.

 

busybody.ng following these two revelations attempted to contact PR agencies responsible for the business mogul’s dealing with the media to obtain a response to such a revelation, unfortunately, mum was the word as the lady responsible for his PR dealings failed to pick up calls or respond to our text messages.

 

However, there seems to be an indication that Dangote or his PR associates might have chosen to engage a number of social media influencers to help discredit the story by  castung aspersions on the story. Our sources told us that these social media influencers on Twitter and Instagram had been contracted by either a close friend or associate of the business man for a fee running into millions of Naira.

 

The said associate of the businessman it was alleged had wanted to use the traditional media but this was frowned upon by Dangote’s PR handler who preferred to use social media as this would quell the virality of such a story, something the traditional media would escalate. The handler had developed a twin strategy of  either discrediting the pictures and videos as photoshopped while another set of social media handlers would simply state that the man had done nothing wrong. Somehow both strategies seem to be gaining the upper hand on social media.

 

Meanwhile Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have been abuzz with the story with a number of #hashtags  such as #dangotebumbum and  #dangoteyansh dominating trends on these platforms.
