Obasa: Sahara Reporters Lied, I Don’t Have 64 Accounts Linked To BVN by oshozondii: 9:03am On May 24, 2020
Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa has denounced report by Sahara Reporters that he has 64 bank accounts linked to his Bank Verification Number, BVN.

Sahara Reporters, in its reports on Saturday claimed that 64 bank accounts have been discovered to be linked to the Bank Verification Number of Obasa and registered with various names, allegedly being used to siphon public funds in Lagos.

But the speaker told PM News on Saturday night that the story was all fabricated and that he did not have such accounts linked to BVN, as claimed by Sahara Reporters.

Obasa said he did not want to react to every story written by the online news platform as he had done previously.

“We have debunked several of its publication and we don’t want to reply him again,” he said.

The speaker said most of the numbers and names being published by Sahara Reporters were duplicated and that the owner of the online platform was being sponsored to do some hatchet jobs for his pay master.

On whether he would institute a legal action against the online platform, he said grounds were being prepared for that, but said he would not be reacting to Sahara Reporters stories again.

Earlier, Sahara Reporters alleged that the BVN: 2296663231, reveals that Obasa operated accounts with multiple names in Polaris Bank, Zenith Bank, Access Bank, Ecobank Nigeria, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Guaranty Trust Bank, United Bank for Africa, First City Monument Bank and Wema Bank.

The online platform further alleged that to conceal his identity, the Speaker changed his name and date of birth in some of the accounts and that aside from using Ajayi Mudashiru Obasa, he also used Obasa Abdulrahman Gbadunola and Gabriel Adedoyin Savage to register some of the bank accounts.

They terribly lied, because it is sure above 64.

Obasa, since they aren't yours, can 2 different people have the same BVN number?

Hmmm. The burden of proof still lies on the speaker.

In saner climes, the Lagos State government or house of assembly for don launch investigation to verify the veracity of these allegations, but we know better.

The annoying thing is why are all relevant agencies esp.the EFCC keeping a scrupulously silence all along? There is something that is not just adding up.

Exactly, the EFCC is supposed to be looking into this.
Could it be that the EFCC also host corrupt officials?

What an irony.

We have a WHOLE agency dedicated to the fight against financial crimes, but here we are.
Investigative journalists are doing their work.

Not a good image.

Sahara Reports have really been good in investigative journalism thus far.
For those who didn't know, it is based in New York City, and it was founded in 2006 by Omoyele Sowore.

Yes, the Sowore we all know.

If it were an opposition member, EFCC will release a statement that they are on the case.

Nonsense.

This man is saying the truth. He uses his Bvn to help the people of his constituency who don’t have. He also uses his name to open accounts for them.



Very caring of him.

is it against the law to have so many bank account?

the only crime is if there are questionable Billion's in those accounts.

the only thing I see there is too many bank charges in a month from all the accounts. if you total all the money in there it might not reach 100 million

Is it possible to have a different name on your account from what's in your BVN? I thought even if the middle name is missing that the account will be restricted.

Hear dis Fool! All Nigerians NOT, only Politicians are madly corrupt. No matter who's in government, they've been imbibed with that mentality and spirit of corruption. angry

The same thing with Dimeji Bankole who was even trying to win a Senatorial seat in Ogun.

WTF? angry
