transacting business with unverified and faceless individuals or
organizations that are going about swindling innocent people under the
guise of giving out juicy loans.

In a statement made available to newsmen in Ado Ekiti, the State
Commissioner for Information and Values Orientation, Hon. Akin Omole
described the viral video of some women in the State that were
allegedly swindled by a company operating under the name ‘Atlas
Initiative Scheme’ as unfortunate and sad, stressing the need to avoid
such unknown entities to avoid being scammed out of their hard-earned
money.

Hon. Omole said that it is heartless for anybody to take advantage of
the innocence of traders and artisans that are only trying to make
ends meet.

Omole who expressed sympathy with the fraud victims, stressed that the
issue was particularly lamentable because the State Government already
facilitated several micro-credit structures that could be accessed by
small and medium scale entrepreneurs through the State Microfinance
and Enterprise Development Agency (MEDA) without fear of avoidable
loss of their money.

Assuring that the State Government would however leave no stone
unturned towards apprehending the suspected fraudsters, he said that
relevant security agencies are already on their tail, emphasizing the
Fayemi administration’s zero tolerance for criminal activities in the
State.

The Commissioner also advised people in the State to make proper
enquiries at the State Ministry of Trade and Industry for possible
loans for small and medium scale businesses to avoid falling prey to
fraudsters.
