In the midst of the Stocks and Securities Limited (SSL) fraud scandal that has sent shock waves across Jamaica, defrauded investor Usain Bolt has turned to scripture, declaring that there is a time for “war.”
According to reports, the retired sprinter was one of at least 30 suspected victims of the multimillion-dollar swindling scheme at SSL. Following confirmation from Bolt’s manager, Nugent Walker, that there was a fraud investigation into his missing investments and that his entire portfolio was being reviewed, Bolt’s attorneys revealed that he was robbed of just under US $13 million.
The sprinter is yet to make an official statement regarding the matter but has seemingly been reacting to the massive fraud cryptically on social media. On Monday, Bolt shared an audio clip of his song Cryptic World with musician NJ on his Instagram and Twitter pages and wrote, “In a World of Lies…where is the truth? The History Evil….What is the Root?…MONEY.”
On Wednesday, the sprint legend tweeted a message that left even more to the imagination and shared an abbreviated version of Ecclesiastes chapter 3, verses 1-9, which speaks on the contrasting seasons in one’s life.
“A time to keep ……. and a time to speak; A time of war, and a time of …..,” Bolt declared, noticeably omitting the section that called for a time of peace.
As the situation in the ongoing SSL saga stands, the company has until January 27 to refund Bolt’s missing investment following his legal representatives’ threats of civil and criminal procedures if they do not comply.
