Alleged Assault: Setting The Record Straight, Jesam Michael Is Victim, Not Maxwell Opara

To set the record straight, controversial legal practitioner, Michael Maxwell Opara is not the victim of the viral assault video trending on social media.

Rather, the CEO of Afriq Arbitrage System, Jesam Michael and thousands of investors of the financial platforms were the true victims of the unfortunate brouhaha that is playing out on social media.

It would be recalled that Jesam Michael who was the complainant at the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday petitioned the Inspector General of Police (IGP), accusing Humble Prince Eta, Donald Michael, Fifeyin Awajumo and Michael Okoh of cyberbullying and cyber stalking.

He alleged that the four individuals circulated some messages against him on Facebook and WhatsApp in April where the accused who were never investors of the company threatened him, his family, workers and put up several incriminating lies against his person.

They were picked up by the police where some shocking discovery was unearthed. Sadly, Maxwell Opara, despite knowing the truth, decided to advocate for them based on monetary gains.

Justice Joyce Abdumalik who was saddled with the responsibility of hearing the case filed by the IGP on behalf of Jesam Michael against the accused ordered the remand of the accused in the Kuje Correctional Centre until May 13, when the case is slated to come up for hearing again.

Interestingly, Jesam was billed to address the media about the ugly trend when Maxwell Opara hijacked the media platform to push a totally wrong narrative and fabrication which prompted Jesam Michael to interrupt him innocently.

Like someone who has an evil plot, like a scripted actor, Maxwell was shouting to an unseen cameraman saying cover him, cover him.

What many people don’t understand is that Maxwell Opara and the accused were allegedly working together for an alleged confessed fraudster, Abayomi Oluwasesan who admitted to stealing $87m of investors money run by Jesam. These are investors from over 540 countries, states and provinces of the world.

Being a man who believes in the security agencies and the rule of law in this country, Jesam toed the line of justice and this move angered Abayomi and his cohorts who have resorted to blackmail and fabrications on social media to sway the gullible followers to their journey of perdition.

That’s why Jesam Michael opened up that the accused persons have been threatening his life and promising to bring him down.

“We are against anyone going to social media, taking up pictures and videos to air out fake stories that Abayomi did not steal money.

“We keep saying if you think Abayomi didn’t steal the money, why not go to the police station and ask the police officers who investigated the case or go to the court where the case is,” said Michael.
