OPC to sue former executive for fraud

27 November 2015, 17:24

Lagos - The National Coordinating Council (NCC) of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) plans to drag its former National Coordinator, Gani Adams, to anti-corruption agencies over allegations of fraud.

Among the agencies OPC is planning to approach include Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Independent and Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) as well as the Special Fraud Unit (SFU) of the Nigeria Police.

The Yoruba nationalist organisation has held an extra-ordinary meeting to explore such plans after it accused Adams of multiple cases of fraud, misappropriation of OPC funds and outright stealing running into “several billions of naira.”

“The conclusion was reached to serve as a means of alerting the public, particularly Nigerians in the Diaspora to the risks they stand should they conduct business with Gani Adams and the so-called Oodua Progressive Union (OPU) network he is presently building around the globe,” said National Coordinating Council of NCC, Akinpelu Adeshina, said.

Adeshina said findings revealed that the OPU and a new broadcast outfit, were luring unsuspecting victims into scams designed to rip them off.

“We want the whole world to know that Gani Adams is a crook and a fraudster who has used his position as National Coordinator of OPC to amass questionable wealth for himself as well as his immediate family. He has in the last fifteen or so years used several methods to siphon funds and to exploit our members.”

Adeshina said the organisation’s advice to unsuspecting members of the public, particularly those in the Diaspora, was to be wary of dealing with Adams or any of his so-called agents.

“As people who are bound to feel the effect of his misadventures (because of his past association with the OPC), we strongly advise and implore the public to desist from dealing with Adams and his agents as doing so can only be followed by sorrow, tears and blood. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.”

Adams could not be tracked for comment.
