Olufunsho Amosun, the wife of the Ogun State Governor, has debunked speculations that she was recently arrested in the United Kingdom over money laundering allegations, saying the false tales were spread by those bent on destroying her image, according to a Premium Times report.
Mrs. Amosun made the clarification at the State Hospital, Abeokuta, on Friday during an interview with journalists shortly after she donated milk and other items to expectant mothers on behalf of Aisha Buhari, the wife of the Nigerian President.
Recall that there were unsubstantiated reports recently alleging that the governor’s wife was arrested in London for laundering money running into millions of dollars.
However, reacting to the reports, Mrs. Amosun said she had never engaged in money laundering or any such crime, and would never do any such thing.
Responding to a reporter’s question, she said, “Well, I thank you for that and I am happy that you called it a rumour. I never did anything of that nature. But as you can see me to the glory of God, it’s not my portion; it shall never be my portion.
“And I believe that you know your Governor, His Excellency, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, I’m sure you know he’ll never be involved in anything that is associated with money laundering or anything negative like that. So, as you said, it’s a rumour and it shall remain so. It didn’t happen. It hasn’t happened and it shall not happen.”
