Leading Turkey based newspaper Yeni Şafak published an article on their platform, which claims that General John F. Campbell a former U.S. commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), a NATO-led security mission in Afghanistan, was the organizer of the July 15 military coup attempt in Turkey.
The article further pointed fingers at Nigerian bank UBA within the alleged coup plot attempt.
However, UBA bank has now responded with the following brief but decisive statement;
UBA is aware of the on-going and spurious media speculation linking our institution to recent events in Turkey. In light of this we believe it is necessary to categorically state that UBA has no involvement in or connection to these accusations, which are clearly false.
We remain focused and firmly committed to delivering on our strategy to build Africa’s premier banking institution.
