OMSL Limited has strongly warned those it claimed have as their pastime the sponsorship of malicious write-ups and such against it and its principal officers that their day of reckoning is at hand.
Specifically noting what it described as the malicious media war instigated against its chairman, Capt. Hosa Okunbo in the form of the publication of an alleged Trans Forcados Pipeline (TFP) contract and attached bank statements from January to February, 2018 purported to reflect the company’s transactions.
The managing director of the company, Rear Admiral Ameen Ikioda (Retd.) in a statement made available to GWG affirmed the contract as imaginary simply on the note that at the time in reference that OMSL was not in a contractual relationship with TFP.
While accusing an online publisher of instigating the claims, he described as very laughable that the author and his sponsors, as well as those mischievously escalating the fake news, clearly got it wrong, as their fabrication has holes in it.
“Blinded by mischief and pull-him-down syndrome, they ought to have known that OMSL was not in contractual relationship with TFP as at February 2018. That assertion is completely false.”
Noting a similar attempt by the same author to link Capt Okunbo with former Minister of Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Allison-Madueke, he said:
“He had unsuccessfully attempted in 2015 to scandalise our company and Capt. Okunbo by creating a non-existent story linking us with the activities of former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke while in office.
“Only weeks ago, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had to petition the Inspector-General Police, demanding a thorough investigation of the blogger after publishing malicious story, in which he alleged that the suspended acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, facing a presidential probe, told the investigative panel that he gave N4bn to Osinbajo.
“Not only has Magu debunked the claim; the panel has also released statement putting a lie to Ude’s allegation.”
While calling on the public to be wary of the shenanigans, of the author, he gave a final warning.
“We also wish to sound a note of warning to all those who have made it their pastime to sponsor malicious write-ups, tweets and online publications against OMSL and our chairman, that their day of reckoning is not far away.
“We have put our legal team on notice to deal with such malicious write-ups.”
