Billionaire businesswoman Folorunso Alakija has dissociated herself from groups naming her as part of their organisation including South West Development Commission (SWDC).

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Mrs Alakija said she was not affiliated to the group or any of such, urging the public to take note.

“I wish to draw the attention of the public to several organisations and online accounts, groups, and pages that have named me as part of their organisation with the aim of defrauding unsuspecting individuals and organisations. One of such is the South West Development Commission (SWDC),” she wrote.

“I wish to state categorically that none of these organisations are affiliated with me nor any of my organisations or ministry.

“Kindly note that such organisations, accounts, and platforms were created for the purpose of defrauding the public.”

The oil and gas mogul further stressed that her social media accounts have the verified sign which should guide the public against falling into the hands of fradusters.

“Please take note of these accounts and be guided accordingly as I will not be liable for any fraudulent transaction perpetrated in my name,” she added.
