Following a report from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that one ‘Abdulrrahman Ado Musa’ was part of terrorism sponsors from Nigeria, 9mobile has exonerated its executive director from the allegation.
Musa’s name was mentioned alongside Salihu Yusuf Adamu, Bashir Ali Yusuf, Muhammed Ibrahim Isa, Ibrahim Ali Alhassan, and Surajo Abubakar Muhammad as Nigerian terror financiers identified by UAE.
The name strikes a resemblance with 9mobile’s executive director of regulatory and corporate affairs, Abdulrahman Ado, but the teleco claimed that its “purely coincidental”.
In a statement released and made available to BUSINESS BELLS on Tuesday to douse the speculation, 9mobile said it was a case of mistaken identity, and that its executive directive was not involved in the criminal act.
“The Management of 9mobile wishes to inform the general public that its Executive Director of Regulatory and Corporate Affairs, Abdulrahman Ado is not the same as ‘Abdulrrahman’ Ado ‘Musa’ purportedly designated along with others by the United Arab Emirates as terror financiers.” 9mobile said.
