In the statement signed by his legal adviser, Dada Awosika, Bashir said he is committed to the service agreement between his firm and Sahara Energy over the buying and selling of 15,000MT Gasoil deal between the two firms in 2018.
Responding to the report that he had defaulted in the agreement and sentenced by a London Court, Bashir clarified that an agreement was reached between Ultimate Oil & Gas, Sahara Energy & Rahamaniyya Oil & Gas on a payment plan for the balance of cargo dues owed to Sahara Energy to be effected between Dec 2019 and 31 Jun 2020.
The oil and gas businessman explained that as part of the agreement, Sahara would relinquish claim over cargo return while Rahamaniyya would withdraw proceedings against Sahara in a Nigerian court. He stated that on June 5, 2020 a revised payment agreement was concluded by all parties and is expected to be completed latest by Feb 2021.
According to the statement, the report about the London court ruling came to the two businessmen as a surprise and informed why both of them met at Sahara Energy office in Abuja to prove that their relationship was intact.
“In the above mentioned case, we wish to clarify that such claims are false, harmful and misleading, as both firms mate today at Sahara Energy Corporate office in Abuja to strengthen their mutual business relationships as attached photographs.
Finally, we wish to state that the relationship between the firms remain cordial and we are up to date with our contractual business agreement. Bashir is a law abiding citizen who remains free based out of his home in Abuja, Nigeria.”the statement read

Dog mauled newborn baby to death ‘while mum was in the toilet and dad was in garden’
A family’s pet dog mauled a newborn baby to death while his mother was in the toilet and his father was in the garden with another child, a coroner heard.
Elon Jase Ellis-Joynes was 12 days old when his family’s Chow Chow-cross is believed to have bitten him on September 13, 2020.
The child, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, was still alive when mum Abigail Ellis frantically called for an ambulance, but died at the hospital.
Doncaster Coroner’s Court heard Elon was “bleeding from his leg or his stomach”.
Police are currently investigating his death and senior coroner Nicola Mundy adjourned the inquest until a later date.
Coroner’s officer David Copley said: “At 3.04pm on Sunday, September 13, a call was made to South Yorkshire Ambulance by Abigail Ellis.
“She stated that her son, Elon, was breathing, but was really poorly.
“He was bleeding from his leg or his tummy, she thought that one of the dogs had bitten Elon.
“She had been on the toilet and her partner Stephen was outside with another child and came running in.
“Officers attended and Stephen Joynes identified Elon to police officers.”
A police spokesperson said the baby had suffered serious injuries after being attacked by a dog.
They said the pet, called Teddy, was removed from the address and will remain in secure kennels until the force’s inquiries have been completed.
