The OJB Jezreel fundraising committee has sued an online news website, Aproko247 for N100 million over a story published on its platform alleging that some members of the committee ripped the ailing singer off through donations made by kind-hearted Nigerians to save OJB Jezreel. 

The website posted the story on Monday, while the committee members called a press conference on Tuesday evening at OJB Jezreel’s residence in Surulere, Lagos, where they made the announcement of the N100million lawsuit against the website.

The committee members are aggrieved that such allegations could be made against them, which they termed ‘malicious and character assassination’.

Members of the committee sworn to press charges to clear their names of the allegations made by the website.

When contacted on phone on the matter, the Editor-in-Chief of the news website, who simply identified himself as Dapo, said, “we are aware of the rumour that we have been sued for N100million over a story posted on our platform on the OJB Jezreel committee, but we have not received any letter from their lawyers or any court. We are waiting for them. But for now, we take it as a mere rumour until we are officially served.”
