A cold war between Nigeria’s newest billionaire, Dozy Mmobuosi and his elder brother-turned business partner,Kayinnebi, over the running of the new multibillion naira Tingo Farms in his homestead of Onicha-Ugbo,Delta state may have scuttled its smooth take off.

 

A reliable source says the fight between the two brothers has gotten so bad they are no longer on speaking terms.

 

The fallout ,we gathered came as a result of the younger Mmobuosi’s untimely sacking of Kayinnebi from co-running the affairs of the Mobile and Fintech company.

 

If no one knew problems existed between the duo,the development became public knowledge shortly after the ground -breaking ceremony of Tingo Farms in Onicha -Ugbo when the billionaire Dozy asked his brother to step aside as the Project Director at the eleventh hour and in-turn replaced him with one Tunji, a structural engineer who was interviewed and employed by Kayinnebi.

The development was said to have irked most of the workers who feel it was a big stab in the back from the junior Mmobuosi to his one and only brother who helped him developed his Tingo Farms project from conception to take-off.

 

The 1.6 billion dollars food processing plant sits atop 150 acres of land and is expected to produce Fast Moving Consumer Goods(FMCG) like Tomato, biscuits, bottle water, chocolates and diary products.It also has a rice farm.

 

As the story goes,all went well between the two brothers until the ground breaking ceremony which had former Agriculture Minister, Mohammad Abubakar and All Farmers Association of Nigeria, AFAN President,Farouk Rabiu in attendance.

 

Those who know a thing or two about the real issue say external influence may have contributed to their no love lost,with accusing fingers allegedly being directed at one of Dozy’s close associates,Martin Ebuwa,brought in by the billionaire to oversee the running of the project.He is now said to be the go-to-man on everything relating to the project.

 

The development has now pitched Kayinnebi,a chartered architect,who reportedly did the architectural drawing of the project,not only with his brother but some of the people he employed for doing a *Judas* on him.

 

Following the development,efforts by their father, concerned friends and associates of the Mmobuosis’ for the timely resolution of the feud has yielded no results.We also gathered that the issue has gotten so bad that the traditional ruler of the town had to wade in but failed in his efforts to convince the once upon a time close brothers to sheathe their sword.

 

Economic analysts say the news of the brothers feud over a yet- to- take off business such as the Tingo Farm is not a good one for the Industry as probable investors are watching.

 

*HIS* *MANY* *CONTROVERSIES*

Only recently,the billionaire businessman reportedly had a spat with the Malawian authorities over the issuance of a diplomatic passport.He was accused of allegedly obtaining their diplomatic passport in a record 2 hours after applying for it.

According to a report issued by the Platform for Investigative Journalism (PIJ-Malawi) although no relevant laws may have been broken,it however did frown at the speedy approval for a foreigner, noting it was a sharp contrast to the lengthy queues Malawians experience to obtain a passport.The report says Mmobuosi filled and applied for his passport under 11338407694 at the 5pm closing hour of Immigration but was promptly issued a record 2 hours later by 7pm.

The first class treatment was allegedly on the orders of the Malawian President,Lazarus Chakwera.

Reports in local media revealed that Mmobuosi had pledged to invest about half a million dollars in a housing project in Phalombe,Malawi after he was approached by his friend,the former Malawian President,Bakili Muluzi.

 

Another controversy surrounding Mmobuosi and his company,Tingo Foods is that revealed by United States based research *firm,Hindenburg,* that the company fabricated its financials.

Hindenburg said its checks with the Nigeria Communication Commission, NCC revealed that it has no record of Tingo, being a mobile licensee despite claims by it of having over 12million subscribers.
