Nigeria's Linda Ikeji Accused of Plagiarism, Blog Shut Down By Google

 Linda Ikeji blog has been shut down by online servicing company Google. The blog lindaikeji.blogspot.com is owned by model turned blooger, Linda Ikeji who is referred to as Africa's richest blogger. The action was carried out on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 by parent body of her blogspot, Google as a result of series of complaints and reports of unethical practices by the millionaire blogger. She also exploited Cameroon Concord's report on the killing of the Boko Haram leader without any form of referencing. The blog www.lindaikeji.blogspot.com is known to have become the No 1 online portal for news, gists and entertainment stories but most of her stories are said to be devoid of clear sources as Linda Ikeji is alleged to have been lifting stories from other sources of news both in mainstream media and new media. It got worse when a claim by cybersquatter with the twitter handle 'AyeDee' notified Google of her practices. According to Linda, Ayedee informed Google about alleged plagiarism/copyright infringement of his works on her blog and Google shut down the blog. Responding to the sad development, Linda who hails from Imo State and acquired a Range Rover Evoque worth 21 million naira recently says that she has been under severe attacks lately by some internet scammers known as cyber-squatters who are doing everything humanly possible to pull her blog down and they might succeed.
