In Summary

  • Dozy Mmobuosi has been described as a billionaire whose reported £90million takeover of the cash-strapped Championship club could rescue them.

Dozy Mmobousi, a Nigerian 'billionaire' close to buying Sheffield United Football Club is reportedly running a fake airline business.

A report by the Athletic says that there is no evidence of the existence of a £1 billion (KSh150 billion) Mmobousi's Tingo Airline.

The business mogul whose net worth is currently £7 Billion (KSh150 trillion) had also been registered as the sole shareholder of the company.

Additionally, the airline's Instagram page has raised more eyebrows as it contains a website link that also does not exist.

Mmobuosi's bid to acquire the England-based club is currently being looked into by the  English Football League Championship to establish the main source of his money. 

The bid comes at a time the club is fighting for a return to the Premier League. It is currently second with 58 points, seven points behind leaders Burnley and 10 points ahead of third-placed Middlesbrough.
