Tunde Ayeni: Aide denies Ntel boss' alleged detention by EFCC
Adedoyin described the reported detention of Tunde Ayeni as a piece of mischief and total falsehood been peddled by idle minds.
The alleged detention of the Ntel boss, Tunde Ayeni by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been denied by one of his aides, Ademola Adedoyin.
In a press statement Adedoyin described the reported detention as a piece of mischief and total falsehood been peddled by idle minds.
"As at this evening when the story was streaming in some online publications, Dr Ayeni was at home in Abuja having a quiet weekend.
"The antics of these mischief makers is obvious for the discerning to decipher. Can a man in EFCC detention be at home at the same time.
"While the mischief makers are busy with their unproductive antics, Dr Ayeni and people of like minds are busy working hard on how to generate employment, grow the economy and return Nigeria to the path of prosperity. He will not be distracted by this campaign of calumny and orchestrated media onslaught against him,"Adedoyin said.
In conclusion, Adedoyin said: "Dr Ayeni operates an open door policy and any journalists desirous of the truth could have put a call across to him or to the Corporate Communications Department of his Conglomerate to find out the true situation of things."
Tunde Ayeni resigned as the Skye Bank chairman in 2016 and has since remained Chairman of the communication company, Ntel .
