A Federal High Court sitting in Awka, the Anambra State capital in Suits No. FHC/AWK/CS/101/2018 and No. FHC/AWK/CS/102/2018 has ordered the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) to take over the business and assets of Micmerah International Agency Limited.

AMCON had appointed Chief Tagbo Anieto as Receiver/Manager over the assets of Micmerah International Agency Limited, which owe it over N1 billion. The company is located at Onitsha, the commercial hub of Anambra State.

In compliance with the court order, AMCON earlier yesterday through the Receiver/Manager took over the business and assets of Micmerah International Agency Limited. Justice I.B. Gafai, who presided over the matter granted AMCON the full possession as well as power of sale over the assets of Micmerah International Agency Limited now in the custody of AMCON.

AMCON had taken over the Non-Performing Loans (NPLs) of Micmerah International Agency Limited from various banks in line with its mandate under the AMCON Act.

All efforts to peacefully resolve the loan were frustrated by Chief Mike Emerah, the prime promoter of the company, which left AMCON with no other choice than to seek justice in the court of competent jurisdiction.

Confirming that AMCON had already taken over the assets/properties of Micmerah International Agency Limited as directed by the Court, Jude Nwauzor, Head, Corporate Communications, AMCON said: “We saw it coming because the said debt is long overdue. As a responsible corporation, before we get to this stage with any of our obligors; we must have patiently tried to resolve the matter without going to court. Anytime we end up taking over assets by the order of the court such as in the case of Micmerah International Agency Limited, it means all efforts by AMCON to get the obligor to amicably repay the indebtedness have proved abortive.
