Caretaker Committee of the Sports Writers Association  of Nigeria (SWAN) Oyo State Chapter has enjoined its members  and the general public  to beware, as one Niyi Alebiosu led Executive has concluded plans to defraud  them by claiming  to be SWAN Chairman.
In a statement signed by its Chairman, Mr Seun Ajayi-Obe, the Caretaker  Committee  revealed  that Alebiosu recently  set up Committees, made  up of non SWAN members and asked  people to pay some amount  into  a private account to participate  in a SWAN Seminar.
Oyo SWAN  Caretaker Committee described  those Committees as deceitful , illegal and fraudulent, as they lack  the locus to operate legally.
The Caretaker  Committee  then disclosed  that law enforcement  agents are being properly  briefed on the present  situation  in SWAN as well as activities  of certain elements, who detached themselves  from the Association but still use SWAN to operate illegally, stressing  that they would soon be brought to book.
It stated that  SWAN is a duly registered  affiliate of the  Nigeria Union of Journalists, adding  that the Association  would vehemently challenge any act capable  of subjecting  it to disrepute.
The Caretaker Committee  recently constituted by the National Executive Committee of SWAN, based on the provision of its statutes, reiterated
its commitment  towards the restoration  of Oyo SWAN sense of direction  and responsibility.
It then thanked members of the Association  for their support  and encouragement, while urging other members  to register properly with the  national SWAN to acquire a fully fledged member status
