Nigerian business mogul, politician and entrepreneur, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, has reacted with a denial to speculations that he was arrested by operatives of Department of State Services (DSS).
The oil magnate, who made the denial known today in a phone chat with The Guardian, added that the rumors were a propaganda against him.
He told the newspaper that: “If I am arrested, I would not be talking with you now They should continue writing, but those who are in doubt should come and watch football match tomorrow because I would be there.”
Earlier today, several online platforms had reported that the founder of Capital Oil was arrested and detained by the premier security outfit.
Also speaking in rebuttal, an aide of the founder of Ifeanyi Ubah Football club, said attempts to smear the good name of his boss would be in futility.
“I can tell you that my boss’s good name in the country today cannot be smeared. He is a hardworking businessman. All these propaganda about him is because he has become a big force to be reckoned with in Nigeria,” the aide who pleaded not to be mentioned said.
