Jimoh Ibrahim’s N69.4bn Indebtedness: Court Declines Vacation Order Over Businessman’s Assets Seized By AMCON


BEVERLY HILLS, February 16, (THEWILL) – A Federal High Court in Lagos today declined to vacate an interim order by which the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) seized properties belonging to a Lagos businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim, for debts totaling N69.4 billion.

Ibrahim, NICON Investment Ltd and Global Fleet Oil and Gas Ltd, approached the court seeking an order to set aside the order obtained based on “non-disclosure and misrepresentation of material facts.”

They further urged the court to order AMCON to pay N50 billion indemnity for alleged failure to conduct due diligence before obtaining the said order and for misrepresentation and concealment of facts.


But Justice Rilwan Aikawa upheld the submission of AMCON’s lawyer that the corporation made “full and substantial disclosure of all material facts” at the time of obtaining the orders on November 4, 2020 and consequently the order would continue to subsist.

Justice Aikawa made the interim order on November 4, and on November 18, AMCON announced that it had effectively taken over 12 properties belonging to the businessman and his companies.

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