A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olabode George has denied receiving N100 million from embattled, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd).
In a statement on Thursday, he said the “libelous publication” in an online platform is outrightly borne upon a twisted and depraved imagination, lacking substance, stripped of any iota of truth, prompted by a primitive malignity.
The statement issued on his behalf by the Chairman Lagos Collectives, Prof Tejumade Akitoye-Rohodes reads further, “For the record, Chief Bode George did not collect a farthing from Dasuki or anybody else whatsoever.
“He has never even set eyes on the former NSA throughout his tenure in office talk less of collecting money from him. “Dasuki of course is very much alive to corroborate this position.
“Where then in the world did Sahara Reporters manufacture its fractured and hideous hack writing and grubby and venomous scribble from?
“Again, in its disdain for clarity and the truth, the grubby online outfit still refers to Chief Bode George as an ex-convict despite the fact the man has been completely discharged and acquitted by the highest court in our land.
“It is rather sickening and sad when any two- bit wayfarer with an access to the Internet churns out absolute falsehood and desperate invective in the name of journalism. Beer parlor reverie and drunken anecdotal scribbles are no substitute for journalism.”
