    Kogi state govt accuses Dangote of planning to obliterate documents, attack govt officials

    As the fight between Dangote group and Kogi state government get messier,
    the Kogi state government says it has uncovered certain plans by Dangote to cause chaos across the state as a counter-attack against the State Government’s decision to get its own legally supported equity from the Obajana Cement Company.

    In a statement issued in Saturday and made available to Newsmen in Lokoja,the state Commissioner for information, Kingsley Fanwo said that the latest strategy stems from frustrations occasioned by the failure of the Dangote Group to misinform the general public and its shareholders as the State Government has consistently and continuously presented the facts of the matter to the public.

    According to him, a top Management Staff of Dangote Group erroneously called a top Government official as meeting was going on to hatch their satanic plans against the Government and people of Kogi State. The call which came in at 10.06pm went on for 28 minutes, 12 seconds, detailing how the Dangote Group intends to doctor documents to prove they own the cement company, 100 per cent”.

    They also discussed “how they intend to use the DSS and other security agencies to arrest top Government Officials on frivolous charges; how they intend to use the EFCC to arrest some Government officials in order to cow them; how they also intend to use the media to promote falsehood against the Government and people of Kogi State and sundry other satanic plans against the people and Government of our dear state”. The commissioner said.

    He said among other things discussed at the meeting was a plans to Obliterate the Agreement between the Kogi State Government and the Dangote Group, A plan to use the press to attack the Governor and the Government of Kogi State. Plan to deploy people to the major TV Stations in the country to attack the Governor and the Government of Kogi State.

    Other Plans hatched at the meeting was to call the EFCC and DSS to claim those who sealed the company on the orders of the House of Assembly stole the sum of N207m and that those agencies should arrest them.

    They allegedly also resolved to initiate both civil and criminal proceedings against certain Government officials and they resolved to block all the major highways across the state with their trucks to make it impossible for the Governor to move out of the state Capital.

    In their words: “We will prove to him that his madness cannot match our own.” They said at the meeting that Dangote owns Nigeria and that there is nothing anyone can do to stop him”.

    He said that “The over 28 minutes recorded meeting typifies the mindset of an economic oppressor who thinks he can use every apparatus of the Federal Government to fight our dear state into submission. Nigeria is what it is today because certain individuals think they own the country and can get away with any attrocity they commit.”

    “We make bold to say that if the Dangote Group attempts to carry out any of his threats or deny our claims above, which are supported by facts, we will release visuals and audio of the said meeting and the whole world will see the mindset and modus operandi of Alhaji Aliko Dangote and his conglomerate. We are a people that cannot be destroyed by the whims and caprices of the capitalist dominance that the Dangote Group stands for”.

    However, efforts to get reactions from the Head, corporate Affiars of Dangote group, Tony Chiejina proved abortive as repeated calls to his office rang out.
