SSS Is Using Vanguard Newspaper To Organize Smear Campaign Against Anthony Okolie


Our attention has been drawn to a poorly-written proproganda on Vanguard Newspaper in which the media outfit made spurious allegations against our Client,claiming the allegations are the outcome of its investigations.

In the publication, eventhough the Newspaper admits that our Client lawfully bought the SIM pack with phone number: 09035666662 without having any knowledge that the phone number was once used.

Two years before by Hanan ; Nigerian President’s daughter, the Newspaper, howbeit, disgracefully proceeded to turn logic on its head by alledging that our Client used the SIM card to perpetrate fraud and illegal activities.

The Newspaper alleged that our Client discovered that the name Hanan Buhari was registered against the phone line on a mobile App; True Caller and our Client should have complained to the Network provider as a result.

The publication further stated that rather than complain, our Client disguised as a lady to defraud people of money. The publication did not state the names of the persons defrauded or the amount received out of fraud.

For the records sake, it is important we draw the attention of the public to the fact that our Client was illegally detained for 10 weeks at the SSS facility without a detention order and was not charged to all through.

Instead, having discovered that any case against our Client would head for the rock, the SSS cowardly released our Client after 10 weeks of detention claiming it he has forgiven our Client.

We make bold to state that if it were true indeed that our Client actually perpetrated fraud, it would have been illegal, immoral and outrageously insensitive for the SSS not to have charged him to court.

The refusal to charge him to Court is due to the fact that there is absolutely no case against him because he has not committed any offence.

We are sorry for Vanguard Newspaper for deliberately shattering it’s own integrity by such a distateful publication

As earlier noted, we have concluded plans to file a lawsuit against Hanan Buhari, SSS, and MTN Nigeria and the lawsuit shall be filed shortly. We shall not allow lawlessness thrive.
