A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, will on January 19, resume hearing on the N1.5 billion suit by Lagos socialite, Ms. Angela Onyeador and her Company, Enta Associates Limited against the Senate and the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Commission (NDIC) for allegedly publishing her name in the list of debtors of the failed banks.
Trial judge in the matter is Justice Akinjide Ajakaiye. The court it will be recalled had granted her leave to initiate the suit.
Onyeador, who is claiming N1.5 billion against the defendants as exemplary and aggravated damages, argued that she had paid her debt and that the Senate made a serious blunder by including her name in the list of debtors of failed banks.
Apart from the Senate and the NDIC, the plaintiffs also joined in the suit, the Senate President, David Mark, Chairman of Senate Committee on Banking, Insurance and Other Financial Institutions, Nkechi Nwaogu, Chairman of Senate Committee on Drugs, Narcotics and Anti-corruption, Sola Akinyede and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as co-defendants.
