Blogger Linda Ikeji claims another John Abayomi owns Instablog (Photo)

Following a lawsuit threat filed at Falana and Falana chambers to Linda Ikeji for naming John Abayomi, an online editor at the Punch newspaper as the owner of
instagram megablog platform Instablog9ja, Linda has retraced her steps as regards her claim, this time saying that the true owner of the platform and the editor who has been falsely labeled look very much alike and share the same name, thereby prompting the mistake from her platform.

Her post reads: “John Abayomi Aruleba, owner of Instablog9ja
In an article on Linda Ikeji’s Blog titled “LIB exclusive: Meet the owner of Instablog9ja - John Abayomi” published on November 15, 2018 John Abayomi was mistakenly identified by his picture as the owner of Instablog9ja.
This mistake was as a result of the exact similarities in the names of John Abayomi who is an Online Editor with Punch and another John Abayomi Aruleba who is the actual owner of Instablog9ja.
The picture identification mistake from our staff was sadly as a result of the uncanny yet not uncommon similarities in the names of these two individuals.
LIB is happy to set the record straight, take full responsibility for the mix-up as we tender our unreserved apology to John Abayomi of Punch Newspapers for any inconvenience this mistake has caused.
Our publication was meant to reveal the identity of John Abayomi Aruleba (pictured above), the owner of instablog9ja who shares the same business address as his father, Dr Arulegba owner of Aruking herbal herbs with business address in Lagos.

The fact however still remains that John Abayomi Aruleba runs Instablog9ja with his partner, Tosin Dotun Adeyemi
