The business partner of the President and Founder of Enemona Josh Humanitarian Foundation, Gabriel Onoja, who was allegedly abducted by unknown gunmen in Lokoja on Thursday morning , has confirmed that Onoja was actually arrested by police officers over N530 Million loan default.
Mr. Olawale Olaluwoye, who averred that he is a business associate of Gabriel Onoja, debunked the news of his purported abduction.
According to him , Onoja was arrested on Thursday for refusing to pay a loan he collected for financing coal mining and haulage business in Kogi state.
“Onoja introduced his business to me and I welcomed the idea. I was in Lokoja in 2020 to see what the business looks like, and I saw it’s a genuine business.
“It was a coal business. He supplies consumers in Ogun and some parts of Abuja. The more we fund the business, the more money we make. He comes with the proposal and we discuss and agree on my Return of Investment (ROI).
“I noticed he started developing interest in politics which I warned him to desist from but he wouldn’t listen. He started spending extravagantly in the guise of doing philanthropic works and it is now difficult for him to give an account of what has been expended on the business,” he said.
He urged members of the public to disregard the rumoured news of Onoja’s abduction, adding that the philanthropist is on his way to Lagos where he will be facing trial.
