FAKE NEWS: SCOTT TOMMEY DEBUNKS ARREST RUMOUR

Save for the need to set the records straight before some unprofessional platforms run with a mere rumour fabricated from a pit of falsehood, top businessman, Scott Tommey would ordinarily have remained his reticent self and allowed his detractors to choke on their evil machinations.

But in an era where utter falsehood can easily be manipulated and dressed in a robe of credibility, fifth columnists should not be given the opportunity to have a field day while flying a fake news-bearing kite.

However, Tommey, the managing director of Osmoserve Group, through his media aide, Peter Okechukwu, has debunked the false claim that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja.

Tommey, who has been in business for over two decades without any scuffle with government authorities, described the story as a “mere rumour concocted from a diseased soul needing urgent surgical attention.”

“In over twenty years of running a business that has grown to become one of the most sought after groups in Nigeria, I have never been involved in any act that sabotages the economy or anything that has the tendency to tarnish my hard earned image.

“We place premium value on transparency and accountability in all my businesses. So that story should be discountenanced and not be dignified with any mileage,” Tommey said in a statement made available to TheCapital.

Debunking the story as utter lies, Okechukwu, the Special Adviser on Media and Communication to Osmoserve said, “This is calling on unsuspecting public to be wary of the shenanigans of this crop of fake news peddlers. We also wish to sound a note of warning to all those who have made it their pastime to sponsor malicious write-ups, tweets and online publications against Osmoserve Global and our MD, Mr Scott Tommey, that their day of reckoning is not far away,” Okechukwu said.
