I Didn’t Grant Any Interview, I And Joe Agi Are Friends, We’ve Spoken – Victor Ndoma-Egba

In Breaking News, Politics

By Archibong Jeremiah

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”.

The above is a reply by Sen. Victor Ndoma-Egba refuting report by Daily Post where he was reported to have been interviewed relating to accusations against him, Paul Erokoro SAN and MT Mbu alleging that they’re theives.

The allegation was made by Joe Agi, SAN during a consultative meeting with members of the his party, APC in Ishibori, Ogoja Local Government Area over his ambition to replace late Sen. Rose Oko in the Senate.

According to Ndoma-Egba in the statement made available to our newsroom, “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.”

He went on to reveal that, “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.”
