Money Laundering: Commissioner’s Arrest Has Nothing To Do With Us, Edo Govt Speaks Out

 

Edo State Government has denied its involvement in the arrest of one of the State’s Commissioner, Osaze Osemwingie-Ero for an alleged money laundering in France.

According to the statement signed by the Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, the State Government has nothing to do with it as it heard about the alleged arrest on social media and cannot confirm what really happened.

Part of the statement read, “We learnt about the alleged arrest of the Arts, Culture, Tourism and Diaspora Commissioner, Hon. Osaze Osemwingie-Ero from unreliable sources on social media and we are unable to confirm either the alleged arrest or what might have led to it.

He also added that though the State Government is yet to confirm the authenticity of the arrest, but can confirm that it has nothing to do with the State and must be personal issues.

But we can confirm without equivocation that whatever the issues might be, they are totally personal and have nothing whatsoever to do with the Edo State Government or Governor Godwin Obaseki,” he added.
