After series of accusations of plagiarism, for the first time in eight years, popular blogger Linda Ikeji’s blog has been shut down.

The blog was shut down today, October 8, 2014 – it is still unclear why this happened. The blog’s url now redirects to an empty page which reads ‘Blog has been removed’.

Fans have taken to Twitter to express their shock, tweeting at the popular blogger about the development.

The shutdown might however be temporary as the blogger has responded, calming fears;

‘Linda Ikeji Blog will be back in a bit…biko bear with me…:-)’, she tweeted

Linda’s blog which was still active this morning had published about 23 stories before it was shut down at about 4:20PM.

Over the weekend, Linda was accused by a number of people of constantly plagiarizing and lifting articles from websites without giving credit to original sources.

She however responded in a statement published on her blog, explaining that she was just being targeted by a group of cyber squatters who had been trying to shut her down for over a year.

Linda is of the opinion that just like herself, every other website ‘in the world’ lifts content also.

‘I admit that I take content from other sites. Plenty of it sef, but the question is, which website in the world doesn’t?’, she wrote.

Linda Ikeji’s blog is currently the 10th most visited website in Nigeria according to commercial web traffic data company Alexa.
