Who Is After Alhaji Ibrahim Dende Egungbohun? Plots To Drag Frontline Businessman’s Reputation Through False Media Reports Uncovered -As He Petitions Police IG

Frontline businessman Alhaji Ibrahim Dende Egungbohun (Chairman of IBD Group) has alleged that there is a grand plot by some people to deliberately attack his personality and legitimate businesses through sponsored fabricated news in the media. In the past weeks, baseless, false accusations have been made against him in certain reports on both traditional and social media. He has however filed a petition to the Inspector General of Police to investigate and bring those behind the attacks to book. Several prominent indigenes of Ogun state, especially Yewaland (including traditional leaders) have come out to condemn the wicked campaign against Egungbohun. Entertainment celebrities and many social media personalities have also lent their voices in his support.

A public communication released by the management of IIBD International Hotels (one of his companies) on Wednesday said the false allegations of his engagement in illegal business activities including smuggling of rice and ammunition are parts of apparent and targeted plots to tarnish his image and bring his personality into disrepute.

The statement reads in part.. “Alhaji Ibrahim Dende Egungbohun is a and law-abiding citizen who has dedicated his life to building a successful and legitimate business empire. He holds a custom license and has been operating as a thoroughbred professional agent for decades – under maximum compliance with all legal requirements/ethics in the import and export industry. His logistics company is involved in car clearing (Lagos, Apapa) and transportation of palm kernel. He has made good contributions to the growth of local industries and he is also a creator of job opportunities, especially in his community.

He is a distinguished hotelier, with exceptional contributions to the local tourism sector. He oversees a thriving quarry business whose operations adhere to all industry regulations. He is also an esteemed farmer, overseeing a palm oil production company that not only supports the local economy but also promotes agricultural development and food security. These facts are there for all to see.”

To drive his passion for humanity, he set up the Ibrahim Dende Foundation, better known as IBD Foundation a non-profit organization located in Ilaro, the capital of Yewa land, in Ogun State. With a mandate to elevate the socio-economic development of Yewa land, IBD Foundation has been committed to the prosperity of Yewa land and its people. Now being coordinated by wife, Alhaja Mrs Omolara Dende, the foundation is genuinely offering support in the areas of Human Capital Development, Economic Development, Entrepreneurial Development, Skills Acquisition/Empowerment, and Special Projects including Entertainment and Talent Hunt. The IBD Foundation was incorporated in 2011 and is now the official Corporate Social Responsibility arm of the IBD Group. It has undertaken numerous initiatives to uplift the less privileged and provide educational scholarships, and access to healthcare to the less reached.

An adorable family man, Alhaji Ibrahim Dende Egungbohun’s contributions to the community extend beyond his businesses. He is the founder of the Juvenile Club, a football club established in 2003. Through the club, Ibrahim has nurtured and supported numerous talented footballers, providing them with opportunities to showcase their skills even on the international stage. Many of them have gone on to achieve great success abroad, bringing pride not only to their families but also to our community. Ibrahim’s commitment to philanthropy is a testament to his compassion, generosity, and dedication to making a positive difference in the lives of those in need.

“It is important to clarify that Alhaji Ibrahim Dende Egungbohun has never expressed any political ambition or aspiration. Against erroneous claims being circulated, he has never been “arrested severally over smuggling offenses”. His businesses are also not “funded with proceeds from smuggling” These accusations are completely unfounded and have no basis in reality. Alhaji Ibrahim’s focus has always been on his businesses, community engagement, and philanthropic endeavors, which have positively impacted countless lives. For his numerous contributions, he has received several accolades, awards, and recognitions (including chieftaincy titles from traditional rulers).  Last year, for being a positive role model and caring for those in need, he received an appreciation award from the Toronto Police (Canada). He was also decorated as a Global Peace Ambassador by World Peace Advocators.”

“It is disheartening to have derogatory words being used in the media to describe the person of a man who has done all these. All the hearsay recently published in the media from a supposed documentary by a particular investigative journalist are false, unfounded, and targeted at just the aim of the plotters.”

The statement further revealed that “Alhaji Ibrahim’s lawyers are currently proceeding to seek legal redress against the individuals behind the false publications.”
