*STATEMENT BY CHIEF MICHAEL ADE OJO IN RESPONSE TO SAHARA REPORTERS FALSE NEWS PUBLICATION
It has come to my attention that a publication by the online news website, Sahara Reporters is in circulation, claiming that I owned the land on which the high-rise building in Ikoyi that collapsed earlier this week, was built.
The story titled “Photo Proof: Osinbajo bought the lkoyi collapsed building” published on November 4, 2021, also claimed that I sold the land to the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, shortly after he became Vice President.
Both claims are outright falsehoods. I hereby state that I do not own and never held title to the said property.
In addition, I did not sell any land to the Vice President at anytime whatsoever.
To be clear, I own a property next to the said building, which I have not sold and do not intend to sell to anyone.
