Thursday, November 16, 2006 shut over alleged gift, accuses FG

Publishers of web-based journal,, has accused the federal government of being the mastermind behind the shut down of its website and other inoperable challenges faced by the website.

According to them, the government is using their web host company and United States based lawyer, especially since its recent publication on the alleged money laundering involving some top government aids.

In a press statement made available to ITREALMS Online, publishers of alleged “", and," have been shut and vows to return soon.

The press statement read in path thus: “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 (Tuesday) just as President Obasanjo admitted to accepting close to $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 (Central Processing Union) at 100 per cent' 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.

“However, this will not happen, as such we will be working round the clock to resume our activities online ASAP.”

They also seek understanding and patience of their readers during this time and seriously implore all lovers of transparency, accountability and good governance who may be willing to share their technical knowledge on how to “reinforce our online presence to please contact us at or call our publisher at 1-347 489 3765.

“Ultimately we will need our own server and SAHARAREPORTERS will appreciate possible suggestions and dedicated support from our teeming readers,” the statement said, declaring, “We will soon be back!”
