He described the tale as nothing but spurious and malicious, labeling those sponsoring it as unscrupulous elements who only aimed at bringing him down. He therefore enjoined the public to disregard the publications as there is no iota of truth in them.
Speaking with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Monday, March 21, 2016, the NURTW strongman expressed total dismay about the report, warning those behind it to desist from further attempts capable of maligning him, if they want to be spared the wrath of Allah here on earth and on the day of accountability.
“To cry it loud, I am a devout muslim which I believe everybody knows. I pray five times daily, and I have been to Mecca, Saudi Arabia for both lesser Hajj and full Hajj many times. Not only that, I have also sent a lot of people to Mecca on pilgrimage, and of course which I do every year. How, for God’s sake, can I be involved in such immorality? How can I organize that kind of a party? What do I stand to gain from such a thing?
“For instance, you as a man, if I invite your wife to such a party, will you allow her to come?
“At this juncture, I believe you also should understand that the whole thing was fabricated by enemies of progress whose aim was to bring me down. But my belief is that the house God has built, no one can demolish it.
“I know I have enemies and there are opposition here and there who may want to do everything to malign me. That can’t happen because Allah is solidly behind me.
“If you’re free now, you can come to my house and see the video of the event if you will see those you saw in the pictures they posted on the internet. That’s to tell you how far they have gone in their attempt as unscrupulous people to tarnish my image.
“I have been waiting for any paper or magazine to publish the false story without confirming from me. Honestly, I would have sued such organization because it’s highly irresponsible for somebody to just sit down somewhere and be fabricating stories against a fellow human being. But thank God you called me, and I respect you for that because you have also honoured me. I thank you for that.
“So, my brother, it’s all rubbish and a cheap blackmail against my person. I can never be a party to that kind of rubbish. MC Oluomo is a decent person. Not only that, I have become a brand. So, I should be far above such a thing.”
Probed further on the source of the photographs posted, he explained, “We all know how big Da Place is, and a lot of people come there, including prostitutes. They only took the pictures of some prostitutes and club girls who were not part of the event, who didn’t even get close to the venue where they organized the party for me, and they posted the pictures to depict my guests. If you check the pictures very well, you will agree with me that they’re club girls, not my guests.
“It was a surprise birthday for me, and I got there around 2.30 pm. A lot of people were in attendance, including Pasuma. I have evidence to prove what I am telling you. Everything is recorded. So, it’s nothing but rubbish.”
Meanwhile, the purported braless party held at Da Place, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, on Monday, March 14, 2016, where all the female attendees were said not to have put on any bra. But when we contacted the birthday boy, MC Oluomo, he denied it all
