Abuja (Sundiata Post) – The Management of NASCO Group Nigeria has said they will never and will never sponsor any act of terrorism in Nigeria or in any part of the world.

NASCO said the Beverage Company is only committed to producing and feeding it’s teaming customers with the best quality products, a practice that has earned it’s name spanning through decades.

NASCO was responding to a malicious publication by a freelance Journalist, David Hundeyin, who reported that the NASCO boss Dr. Ahmed Nasreddin alongside some other prominent northern figures were allegedly financing some regional terrorism, including Boko Haram.

NASCO spoke in a statement signed by its Public Affairs Advisor, Haroun Audu, said that the company have never and will never sponsor any criminal act, or violence of any kind that will disrupt the peace and tranquillity of the Nigerian State or any country in the world.

According to the statement: “The unfortunate events of 2001, thousands of people and entities around the world were subjected to investigations.

“A detailed examination by the United Nations Security Council and the US Government totally exonerated NASCO’s late founder. Dr. Ahmed Nasreddin, and his business interests of all allegations”.

The company further cited a similar investigation done by the NIA which also exonerated them and their late boss of any act or complicity in the sponsorship of terrorism in Nigeria or in any other country.

“NASCO can also categorically affirm that it has never been associated with nor had businesses dealings with any of the persons mentioned in the false report,” the company said.

The statement added that “It was clearly established that NASCO was never at any time associated with the sponsorship of terrorism directly or indirectly anywhere in the world”.
