We don’t owe Union Bank – Ontario Oil

The management of Ontario Oil and Gas Limited has denied any fraudulent sale of refined petroleum products as alleged by Union Bank Plc in what the company described as a “hurriedly” procured ex parte application filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The company spoke on Monday on the matter of a commercial transaction between her and the bank which dated back to 2014.

Speaking through its counsel, Ben Udoh, Ontario Oil acknowledged that it did approach Union Bank for a facility to import and market petroleum products in 2014.
