Jackson Ude, the alleged publisher of Pointblank News , whose Twitter handle is @Jacsonpbn may be one of the fraudsters (also know as yahoo boys in local parlance) who were stealing money from the Fidelity Bank account of NNPC’s retiree, Mr. Hamza Ibrahim Jamo.
Jamo in a telephone interview with journalists from his Kaduna base, disclosed that if not for the intervesion of the nation’s anti-graft agency, the Ecomomic and Financial Crimes Commision (EFCC) which arrested some of the gang members at different locations in 2019, said themfraudsters would have finished his gratuity which was thrmhighedt oney ever he lodged in that account. “After I was alerted by the EFCC I had to close down the account but to my suprise somebody started calling mentioning the correct details of the account with my phone number and BVN and alleged that I have N1.5 trillion and $9 million linked to the account.
Jamo who is currently the Nigerian Director of a Dubai based company, Talent Expertise, disclosed that he was further distraught as Mr. Ude who claimed be a journalist was mixing up his name with of that of the Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr Bashir Jamoh who does not know or even share a common surname with.
He vowed to report the matter to the EFCC to investigate and invite Mr. Ude, “to come along to explain how he got my old Fidelity Bank salary account which has been closed for over year now.”
Recall the Mr. Jackson Ude, a Diaspora Nigerian who claims to be a journalist and publishes an online newspaper, Pointblank News had Twitter using Twitter handle, @Jacksonpbn that the Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Bashir Jamoh is owner of the said closed Mr. Hamas Ibrahim’s Jamo’s account and further alleged that the DG has humongous sums of N-.5 trillion and $9 million stashed in the accounts.
He later published in his online newspaper, a story that has in the past two days found to be untrue, a criminal identity mixup of two different identities with the intensiom.
The underlining reason for such unintelligent gaff experts say, point to an attempt to commit crime, blackmail. They further said that how Mr Ude came about the account number of the humble NNPC retiree, Mr Jamo, deserves a through investigation, saying “there lies the true identity of Mr Ude,” one of the experts said.
