Taxi company which Nollywood actor Jim Iyke claimed to own has come out to label such claims as false. Reports had it that the actor has been going around posing as the CEO of the company which is set to begin operations in the South-Eastern states of Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Abia, and Ebonyi.
However, the Chief Operating Officer of the company, Mr Austin Nnaemeka, said the actor was just a brand ambassador of the company. He further stated that Jim Iyke has been relieved of his job upon finding out that he was posing as the owner of the company.
“Jim Iyke is my friend, and I brought him in as a brand ambassador of the company, just like Rachael Okoli and other celebrities here but he started asking questions that were out of his scope.
“He later started looking for a way to sway us into making him a shareholder, and then started parading himself as the owner of the company. He was warned once, and again, making it two times before we relieved him of his job.
“I am using the opportunity of this press conference to state emphatically that Mr Jim Iyke is not the owner of Mr Taxi and has no contribution in the company. That is what I want to tell you today” he said.
