The UK National Crime Agency has distanced itself from a viral document claiming that it has begun investigation over a case of money laundering by Alpha Beta through British banks to suspected drug dealers in Columbia.
In a series of social media posts, supporters of Labour Party had taken advantage of the documents to harbinge it as ‘more troubles’ for the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu who has, in the past, been linked without proof to the tax consulting firm, Alpha Beta.
However, in an official letter dated 30th January, 2023, the agency has denied ever issuing such document, revealing that its intelligence had traced where the IP address emanated from and found it to have engendered from the Labour Party, Presidential Campaign Council, Abuja, Nigeria.
It wrote, “We write in relation to a false document, purporting to have originated from our team within the UK National Crime Agency (NCA) dated 23 January, 2023z traced to an IP address belonging to a terminal within the office of the Labour Party, Presidential Campaign Council, Abuja, Nigeria.’
In the course of the election campaign window, LP and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi have, several times, been found culpable of spreading fake news, dishing out inaccurate statistics and spinning assorted narratives to malign their political opponents and give their supporters a phony impression of themselves in a desperate and disguised attempt to court political fanastism.
