Nikola: Its founder resigns after allegations of fraud

"Nikola is really in blood and will be forever, and the focus should be on the company and its mission to change the world, not on me. "So I made the difficult decision to step down voluntarily as executive chairman of the board," said Trevor Milton.

The announcement comes a week after the sales company Hindenburg Research blamed the company that lied about its products and transactions with other companies. The research company called Nikola's business an "ingenious scam".

Hindenburg presented a message email, which Milton reportedly sent to potential investors in his former business, dHybrid, in which he seems to overestimate the value of a deal with the truck company Swift transport. An alleged copy of the contract included in the report suggests that the deal is only worth $ 16 million, compared to Trevor Milton's $ 250 million claim.

According to information, the Ministry Justice and the Hellenic Capital Market Commission are investigating the allegations.

Nikola said the report was designed to "give false impressions to investors and manipulate the market negatively in order to benefit sellers, including Hindenburg."

The founder of Nikola, described the exhibition as a "successful work".
