The Federal High Court in Lagos has adjourned till January 12, 2021, to rule on an application by businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim, seeking the reversal of an interim court order which authorised the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria to take over his properties over alleged N69.4bn.

Justice Rilwan Aikawa fixed the date on Tuesday after taking arguments from counsel for Ibrahim, Nicon Investment Limited and Global Fleet Oil and Gas Limited, Adenrele Adegborioye; as well as AMCON’s lawyer, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN).

In their Motion on Notice, Ibrahim and the firms contended that the court granted the seizure order in error because AMCON allegedly concealed material facts in its ex parte application leading to the seizure order.

Ibrahim and his firms prayed the court to order AMCON to pay them N50bn indemnity for their alleged failure to conduct due diligence before obtaining the said order sought to be set aside and for misrepresentation and concealment of fact.

But AMCON’s lawyer, Pinheiro, opposed the defendants’ Motion on Notice and prayed the court to dismiss same.

Following the seizure order made by Justice Rilwan Aikawa on November 4, AMCON took over 12 properties belonging to Ibrahim and his firms.

The properties included the NICON Investment Limited building Plot 242, Muhammadu Buhari Way, Central Business District, Abuja; NICON Hotels Limited building at Plot 557, Port-Harcourt Crescent, off Gimbiya Street, Abuja and the building of NICON Lekki Limited also at No. 5, Customs Street, Lagos.
