The Ondo State Government has denied any involvement in an attempt by a group of people planning to defraud potential beneficiaries of GEEP loan in the state.

Bulk SMS is being sent to a large number of people in the state with the claim that they should report at a location in Akure for interview.

The message had directed the applicants to report at No 1, Aguda Close, Opposite L’Afarge Depot, Ondo road for documentation and interview.

Speaking with newsmen, the special adviser to Governor Akeredolu on Public and Intergovernmental Relations, Mrs Olubunmi Ademosu said such message did not emanate from the office of the Bank of Industry or the State Focal Person .

Ademosu emphasized that none of the data or information submitted for application for GEEP loan has been released for grant anywhere.

She frowned at a situation where a group of people could come together to defraud unsuspecting members of the public, stressing that government has since put in place a platform that ensures that interested and qualified applicants benefit from the loan.

Mrs Ademosu warned that those behind the fraudulent practices would be tracked and dealt with according to the law.
