By Ise-Oluwa Ige

ABUJA – A pastor of the Christ Embassy, Mr. Uyiekpen Henry Idugboe has sued the Union Bank of Nigeria, UBN, before an Asaba high court, asking for  N100 million as damages.

He is inviting the court to award the damages in his favour over alleged negligence and criminal breach of trust.

Specifically, Pastor Idugboe instituted the action before the Asaba High Court following the decision of the bank to honour cheques of Stephen Iduogbe and Sons Company Limited (2nd Plaintiff) which did not carry his signature as required by the mandate card.

According to the mandate card issued to Union Bank, Idugboe, who is in-charge of the Suleja Branch of the Christ Embassy, is a compulsory signatory to all transactions made by Stephen Iduogbe and Sons Company Limited, a firm used to operate the Iduogbes family business.
