The ongoing face-off between a tax consultancy firm, Alpha Beta, and its elsewhile boss, Dapo Apara, has taken another dimention after the company further alleged that Apara inflated cost of tax cards to the tune of US$18 million.
It added that Apara often defrauded the company of US$3.5 million throughout his years of managing AlphaBeta Consulting and that he collected the sum of US$3.2 million per annum for cloud services as against the US$135,000 that it actually costs.
AlphaBeta, through a statement made available to The Guild, claimed that Apara allegedly incorporated Infiniti Enterprises, his personal company, into the the company’s payroll when he was Managing Director, without notifying other owners.
According to the statement, the company alleged that Apara equally paid the sum of over N12 million into its boss, Akin Doherty’s account two years ago, to blackmail him and evade justice when his fraudulent activities came to the open.
The company, while appealing to the public to disregard reports against its activities, argued that it was not guilt of any impropriety which was been paddled in reports.
“The general public is hereby advised to disregard the crocodile tears of this pretender who abused the trust we placed in with reckless abandon and almost ran our company aground. He was praising ABC to high heavens when he was milking the company and only turned to an enemy because we took the bold decision to remove him when we discovered that he was not the honest professional that we taught him to be”.
