Here Are List Of Hotels, Real Estate Properties Jimoh Ibrahi

Global Fleet Oil & Gas Limited has been shutdown by Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON), as Nigerian businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim, loses his properties to the government agency over debt worth NGN69.4 billion.

AMCON clampdown on several properties belonging to Ibrahim due to the bad debt, freezing accounts, shutting down NICON Investment Limited, and many other hospitality companies owned by Ibrahim.

The clampdown followed a Federal High Court order by Justice R.M. Aikawa, in Lagos, which gave AMCON possession of all shares belonging to Ibrahim. The property takeover was effected by Pinheiro Legal Partners, AMCON’s debt recovery agent.

What You Need To Know About The Loan

AMCON had purchased the debt from Union Bank, as part of its duties to weigh into debt issue between companies and lenders. The debt was purchased by AMCON to give Ibrahim more time to fulfill his debt obligation, but avenues to resolve the debt amicably yielded no result on the part of Ibrahim.

"The matter between Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim and the corporation has been interminable since the loan was purchased by the government debt recovery agency during the first phase of eligible bank assets (EBA) purchases from Union Bank in the early days of AMCON,” the statement read.

“Since the purchase of the EBA from Union Bank, AMCON has offered the obligor incredible exit opportunities to no avail. And as is tradition, AMCON has for years explored all avenues to resolve the debt amicably;

"but Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim and his companies – Global Fleet Oil & Gas Limited and NICON Investment Limited, have remained recalcitrant and unenthusiastic to repay the huge debt, which has left AMCON with no other choice than to activate the full force of its amended Act, signed into law last year by President Muhammadu Buhari.”
