Oritsejafor's Plane Was On Lease – Green Coast
Contrary to insinuations that the bombardier jet belonging to Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor which was arrested with $9.3m in South Africa was on errand for the man of God, Green Coast Produce Company Ltd has clarified that it was on lease to a third party as at the time of the incident. A statement by D r Shima Adun on behalf of the company explained that it was one John Ishyaku who hired the plane for the South African trip.
The CAN President in a chat with NP also added that he decided to lease the aircraft which was presented to him on the 40th Anniversary of his ministerial ordination “to offset the costs of maintenance.”
