Renowned scion of the Royal Eletu Odibo Family of Lagos, Prince Waheed Eletu Odibo, has stated that he has not been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
In a statement issued at the weekend, Prince Eletu Odibo wrote: “My attention has been drawn to reports that I was declared wanted by a Lagos Special Offences Court, Ikeja. This allegation is untrue and the reports are fake news.
“The allegations as being reported on the internet and social media are untrue.”
Prince Eletu Odibo cautioned the public to ignore such reports, saying “they are fake news being spread by my enemies with a view to tarnishing my image and that of the Royal Eletu Odibo family.
He also stated that reports of a businessman owning 250,000 hectares of land on Eletu Royal family land is untrue.
Similarly, business mogul, Mr Yemi Idowu, has refuted an online report claiming that he has been declared wanted by the EFCC.
The report alleged that 250,000 hectares of land in Lekki, Lagos belonging to the said businessman was converted by Mr Idowu and Chief Waheed Eletu Odibo.
But in a swift reaction, Mr Idowu said: “I found out that some people were trying to tarnish my image online.
“I have never been invited to court by the EFCC or any other law enforcement agent and I was never arrested by them. I am perfectly safe and sound. It is fake news whose purveyors I am determined to take legal action against.
“I thank my family members and friends for their concern over this malicious fake news. Kindly ignore the fake news. Thank you all for your concerns.”
