Mahmoud Ahmadu has refuted the reports that he has been charged with money laundering offences by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
In a release, Ahmadu said the press should endeavour to tell the truth at all times, no matter whose ox is gored.
“When we present matters to the public, we should ensure that the truth is told no matter whose ox is gored. The lies we tell about others to dent their images may come back to us.
“We hope our media men would take time out to do diligent investigations before going to press”, the release said.
However, contrary to what has been circulated about the businessman and entrepreneur, The Street Journal investigations revealed that he has never been charged with money laundering allegations.
It would be recalled that a national newspaper once circulated the news then that he was wanted in the UK and indeed was being charged for money laundering.
The man in the eye of the storm described such news as malicious with the intent of damaging his hard-earned reputation.
