Ex Super Eagles’ Captain Kanu Nwakwo’s Bank Accounts Frozen Over Debt
A Federal high court has ordered all accounts belonging to former captain of the Super Eagles, Nwankwo Kanu anywhere in Nigeria be frozen.
According to Saharareporters.com, Kanu’s accounts and those of his company Hardley apartments anywhere and in any financial institution in the country have been ordered frozen.
The accounts were frozen because of the ex-footballer’s inability to pay back a debt of N924,788,754.56.
Director of Hardley Apartment, Ayoola Gam-Ikon was also reportedly affected by a suit which was filed by the Asset Management Corporation Of Nigeria (AMCON) in an affidavit sworn to by a Credit officer in the Directorate of AMCON, Mr Victor Igabor.
Barrister Niyi Olopade is representing AMCON. Kanu’s alleged indebtedness as at the 15th October 2015 stood at N924,788,754.56
The presiding judge, Okon Abang adjourned hearing to a later date.
