Business mogul, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, the Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas Industries Ltd and the Publisher of The AUTHORITY Newspapers, has debunked rumours that he was arrested by the Department of State Security (DSS).
Ubah, who spoke to us on the telephone yesterday, said the rumours of his purported arrest were propaganda against him by his detractors.
According to Ubah, who is the founder of premier division Ifeanyi Ubah Football Club, “If I am arrested, I would not be talking with you now. They should continue writing, but those who are in doubt should come and watch football match tomorrow because I will be there.”
Some online platforms had curiously reported that the founder of Capital Oil was arrested and detained by Nigeria’s Department of State Services (DSS).
But an aide of the business mogul said all attempts to smear the good name his boss has earned would be in futility.
According to the aide, “I can tell you that my boss’s good name in the country today cannot be smeared. He is a hardworking businessman. All these propaganda about him is because he has become a big force to be reckoned with in the nation’s energy sector and beyond.”
