Helicopter pick up incident
On 24th June,2019 Julian Osula was reported to have chartered a helicopter to pick him up along Benin-Lagos expressway after spending about 2hours in a traffic jam. A viral video circulated in online platforms and media outlets.
However Julian Osula on 25th July,2019 denied being picked up or sending a helicopter to pick someone trapped in a traffic jam as alleged.
Julian Osula while debunking the rumors said
“There is no single truth in that story and I don’t know why these people would do this”.
“All I did was upload the video when I saw it like every other person did and being a Luxury Entrepreneur, I captioned my upload thus, “REAL LUXURY LIFESTYLE…..THE POWER OF MONEY…..PICKING UP A VIP WHO IS STUCK IN TRAFFIC ON THE LAGOS BENIN EXPRESSWAY”.
These purveyors of fake news concluded on their own that I must have been the one who either got picked up or sent the chopper to pick someone and without reaching out to me to ascertain the veracity of their assumption, went to press with such story”.
I mean, when you called me now, I picked and attended to you, meaning that I am reachable and I wonder why these your colleagues didn’t atleast, try to reach me before publishing the kind of falsehood going round against my person.
I plead therefore, Mr. Osula continued, for the general public to disregard the fake stories going round the Social Media, that I, Julian Osula of www.juliansluxury.com had anything to do with the incident in question and would like to encourage Bloggers and Online Publishers to verify stories always before publishing them.”
