The National Crime Agency (NCA), UK, has written a pre-action notice to the Labour Party in Nigeria over a fake document that emanated from the Party and falsely attributed to the NCA.
Reports said the NCA used the IP address of the mobile device where the false document emanated from to trace it to the National Headquarters of the Labour Party in Nigeria.
There are speculations that the said document is designed to spread fake news in the few weeks leading to the 2023 presidential election against the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
A copy of the fake letter was designed to create an impression that l there are trouble for Tinubu as the UK National Crime Agency begins investigating a case of money laundering by Alpha Beta through British banks to suspected drug dealers in Colombia.
In the said letter by NCA in possession of thegazellenews.com, addressed to the Director General of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, Akin Osuntokun, the letter urged the Campaign Council to issue a public statement debunking the alleged false document.
The NCA gave the Labour Party PCC a 21-day ultimatum to make public statement against the alleged false document failure to which it will commence proceedings against the LP PCC.
