Nwankwo Kanu Cries Out Over Plan To Sell His Hotel
The Assets Management Company of Nigeria may have concluded plans to sell Nwankwo Kanu’s Hardley Suites on Victoria Island, Lagos to a third party.
The Former Super Eagles captain Nwankwo Kanu raised the alarm in a statement made available to our correspondent.
He said that AMCON is about to “forcibly seize” the property due to an alleged debt he never owed the Federal Government’s agency.
He said that the case of the purported indebtedness is in court while the property had been put under the temporary possession of AMCON by an ex-parte order.
Kanu explained that there were plans to sell the hotel under a secret arrangement.”
This has become necessary in the light of some bizarre actions of self-help embarked upon by AMCON in vandalising/stripping the assets, under the guise of renovations, but ostensibly with a clandestine design to brazenly sell or hand it to a third party under secret terms and thus complicate/further stall this matter.”
Kanu, who is the founder of Kanu Heart Foundation says that the hotel provides the funds with which the foundation uses to care for heart patients and will be unfair and illegal for AMCON to sell it.
The matter will come up for hearing before a Federal High Court on February 14.
