AMCON seizes Senator Buhari’s properties
Meanwhile, AMCON recently took over assets belonging to Senator Abdulfatai Buhari over an alleged N600m debt taken by his company, Abadat Ventures Limited.
The corporation said Senator Buhari who is representing Oyo North senatorial district in the National Assembly took the loan from a first-generation bank and refused to offset it despite repeated reminders.
It explained that the decision to seize Senator Buhari’s assets was sequel to the order of Justice I. E Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
AMCON accused of demolishing property worth over N400m
In other related news, the founder of the United Network of Youth for Peace and Diplomacy, Mojisola Ogundiran, has alleged that AMCON seized her family's property business by deceiving the court.
Ogundiran said the property, situated in Durban, Wuse 2, Abuja, was seized following a debt issue involving her late father and a first-generation bank. She stated her dad obtained a loan of N40 million from the lender, out of which he later paid N5 million.
The debt was later bought over by AMCON at N20 million. The debt issue has been on before her father passed away in 2015. Ogundiran stated she filed a lawsuit against the government agency to stop it from forcefully taking over their property which has become a source of livelihood for her.
