Blueprint Consulting has denied any involvement in the activities of Seye Onigbinde, a partner at the firm who was arrested for swindling over 200 Nigerians of about N500 million in illegal forex deals.

Mr Onigbinde had defrauded his victims after selling a proposal to double their funds through an investment scheme that ultimately turned out to be a ponzi.
Onigbinde, who operated for about three years with no registered office address and license and without being detected by law enforcement agents, swindled his “clients” and permanently switched off his phone. He was however tracked and arrested by detectives led by the Area Commander Area ‘F’, ACP Akinbayo Olasoji.

Blueprint Consulting, a knowledge-based accounting and financial advisory service firm, has since issued a rejoinder to state their own side of the story, especially as the company is not licensed to carry out forex deals.

Managing Partner, Blueprint Consulting, Tijani Ramoni Adeyanju said: “The arrest of Onigbinde, a partner at Blueprint Consulting, has just been brought to the attention of the firm and it is imperative to place issues in proper perspective.

“Blueprint Consulting is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission to carry out the business of accounting services, training, tax advisory and business support services; that Blueprint Consulting is not in the business of trading of Foreign Exchange or any allied services whatsoever; that Mr. Seye Onigbinde traded in Foreign Exchange in his personal capacity and not as a partner in Blueprint Consulting; that Onigbinde did this illegally without the consent and or authority of other partners of the company.

“We use this opportunity to indicate the readiness of Blueprint Consulting to indicate the availability of our Managing Partner, Mr. Tijani Ramoni Adeyanju, to cooperate with the security agencies in their investigations of the allegations levied against Mr. Seye Onigbinde.”
