Embattled Lobi Stars Vice Chairman and CEO, Mr. Dominic Iorfa, has denied being arrested or detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC).

The alleged arrest was in connection with the petitions by the Benue State Football Stakeholders to the commission on sundry acts of corruption perpetrated by the club chairman, Iorfa.

But Dominic Iorfa in a press statement on Wednesday said that he and his associates were never arrested or detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Makurdi Zonal Office as published via Social media albeit a completely false and malicious report.

The statement reads; “it is true that some unknown entities strangely called Benue State Stakeholders Forum wrote a petition whose contents were principally aimed at tarnishing my image and reputation for no apparent reason.”

“To put the record straight, my associates were invited for clarifications by the anti-graft body which is part of their extant duties to ascertain the authenticity or otherwise of the allegations contained in the petition, as their associates for over 15 years and as responsibility demands, I went to the office of the anti-graft agency without being arrested as speculated falsely and wickedly to throw more lights on the spurious allegations,” he added.

“Be that as it may, the petition is being professionally investigated by the competent officials of the EFCC and I want to make it abundantly clear that none of my associates were detained in the EFCC custody,” the statement reads.
