A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has ordered the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria, AMCON and United Bank for Africa to take over an Ikoyi, Lagos property of former governor of Cross River State, Mr Donald Duke, over an alleged N537,334,360.77 debt.

Justice Chuka Obiozor made the order on August 8, 2019, in a ruling.

The order was under an ex-parte application, brought before the court by AMCON and UBA.

The defendants in the suit are Stonehedge Investment Limited, Mr. Duke and Mrs. Owanari Bob-Manuel Duke, respectively.

The applicants had prayed the court for “An order of interim attachment, possession and custody of the property being No. 3, Temple Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.”

They told the court that the property was mortgaged by Duke “as collateral in securing the 1st respondent’s indebtedness to the applicants.”

They urged the court to grant them possession of the property “pending the institution and disposal of proceedings for recovery of debt against the respondent, according to Section 49 of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria Act 2010 (as amended).”

The judge granted the prayers, in addition to an order restraining the respondents from “transacting, transferring, changing or howsoever, dealing in any manner or interfering with the applicants’ possession” of the Ikoyi property.

The judge ordered AMCON and UBA to ensure service of substantive originating processes on the respondents within 20 days of the making of the order and adjourned further hearing in the case till September 2, 2019. (Vanguard)
