Statements credited to me are malicious, an attempt to ridicule my friend Joe Agi —Ndoma-Egba

18 July 2020

Former leader of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, has dissociated himself from a malicious publication against Joe Agi NEGROIDHAVEN has garnered.

This is coming few days after a publication went viral online in which Agi allegedly referred to Ndoma-Egba, late Matthew Mbu and Paul Erokoro as thieves.

But Ndoma-Egba in a statement on Saturday, disowned what ostensibly appears to be a follow up publication by a popular online news medium, saying there was never a time he granted interview to the author of the said story.

He said the article was only meant to tarnish his image and create dissatisfaction between him and Agi, whom he said have since resolved the issue that led to the initial report.

"My attention has been drawn to an online publication in the Daily Post of July 17, 2020 with the caption 'Trouble in Cross River as Joe Agi calls Ndoma-Egba, late Mathew Mbu, Paul Erokoro thieves'.

"I wish to categorically state that I did not grant any press interview with the author of the story and those statements credited to me are malicious and deliberate attempt to ridicule and embarrass my person and my friend Joe Agi.

"It is on record that Joe Agi and I have discussed the said video that led to the report and he (Joe) had retracted it. Hence I could not have gone ahead to grant a press interview on the matter. I regret any embarrassment this publication may have caused him.", the statement reads.
