It has been revealed that businessman and entrepreneur, Mahmood Ahmadu has never been charged for money laundering offence.
This was contrary to report being circulated around that the businessman has been charged for money laundering offence.
A statement by the Chairman of the Association of Online Media Practitioners of Nigeria (AMPON), Wole Arisekola, confirmed that investigation conducted by the association has confirmed that Ahmadu was never charged for money laundering offence.
“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.
“Contrary to what was being circulated about businessman and entrepreneur, Mahmood Ahmadu, our investigations have revealed that he has never been charged with money laundering allegations,” the statement said.
It would be recalled that a national newspaper circulated the news then that he was wanted in the UK and indeed was being charged for money laundering.
According to Arisekola, “the man in the eye of the storm called the AMPON office and described such news as malicious with the intent of damaging his hard-earned reputation.
We hope our media men would take time out to do diligent investigations before going to press”.
