Court fixes date for Nwankwo Kanu’s hotel case hearing

Nwankwo Kanu

The Federal High Court in Lagos has fixed hearing for January 16 in a suit involving Hardley Apartments owned by former Super Eagles player Nwankwo Kanu.

The Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) had filed a case in court seeking to recover an alleged N924million debt owed by Hardley Apartments which is based in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke on Wednesday fixed the date for hearing of all pending applications.

AMCON filed the suit in 2015 with Hardley Apartments and its director Ayoola Gam-Ikon as first and second defendants.

The case was assigned to Justice Okon Abang, but, following his transfer to another jurisdiction, it was reassigned to Justice Aneke.

In December 2015, following AMCON’s application, Justice Abang had granted an order freezing the accounts of Kanu and Hardley Apartments.
