It was a drama of some sort today at the Portharcourt Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC. Investors of the embattled Investment Company Bluekey Technologies stormed the office of the Anti-graft Agency not in a protest but to submit details showing proof of their investment.
This was a directive issued by the company management to all her investors yesterday. Below is the official statement released by the company to investors.
“Good day Bluekey Community,
As part of the requirements for the investigation by EFCC, all members of Bluekey are requested to go to EFCC office in PortHarcourt to write down their details including Fullname, amount invested, and dates of investment. These details will be compared to the official submission earlier made by Bluekey.
In this light, we expect our community to cooperate with the investigation to enhance speedy resolution of the matter at stake and commencement of Bluekey business activities.
Our investigative report confirmed that the drama ensued after a female official of the commission suggested to the investors that they were there for a refund of their invested capital of which they were defrauded by the company. However, the investors unanimously countered her assertion insisting that they were not defrauded by the company neither where they requesting for a refund as suggested. They affirmed that were only there to provide evidence of payments as the company directed them to.
Frustration and panic set in as most of the investors got aggrieved and worried regards the method at which they were attended to and how issues were handled due to the much crowd. However, an Official of the EFCC in an attempt to calm frayed nerves made himself available to answer a few questions from anxious Investors.
Unverified report has is that some of the investors were at some point asked to go home and expect to hear from the commission for further directives on how to continue the process.
A cross-section of investors whom we interviewed lamented their grievances over what they believed is an organised conspiracy and prayed that justice be done. They described the battle between the Company and the commission as a fight between two Elephants where the investors are grasses which suffers the most.
The company is yet to make any official statement regards the recent development. We hope that this issue is resolved as soon as possible to satisfaction of all parties especially aggrieved investors.
