God will punish me if i was involved ? Ex-minister denies being involved in stripping his staff naked over missing money


Former Minister of State for Petroleum, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi has denied being involved in stripping some of his hotel staff naked over a missing money. 

Recall that the Minister made headlines after being accused of arresting four of his hotel staff and stripping them naked for allegedly stealing N5,000. The four staff of the hotel are identified as Gloria Oguzie, Victor Ephraim, Rosslyn Okiemute and Achibong Precious. it had been also alleged that the hotel management forcefully made some withdrawals from their bank accounts with their ATM cards before the police took them away during a waiting van.

However commenting on the incident at a news conference held at his country home in Oginibo, Ughelli South council area of Delta state, Gbagi stressed that the said staff we ren't employees of the hotel but freelancers. He added that there are records to back this up.

He further alleged that his political detractors who are bent truncate his plans to contest for the 2023 gubernatorial race within the state, are behind the trending video and photos. 

Gbagi said;

There was nothing as you have read, that happened. The people you saw in those pictures aren't staff of my hotel. Legally, documentarily, they're not staff of the hotel. they're freelancers.

Were you to do a forensic analysis of the video for my body on those pictures, and you find me there, i will resign from politics.

I invited the Police from Ebrumede to take them. i will never descend to do such (strip people naked). it had been politically motivated. i will not strip anybody’s daughter naked or strip somebody.

This, to me, is simply a distraction. i'm resolute, i'm contesting in 2023. Let God punish me if I touched any of the women or was involved in their stripping. i'm prepared. i do know what they're planning.

The former Minister who also revealed that he's yet to receive a police invitation over the incident, added that he “will graciously attend any invitation of the Nigerian Police
