Ibru seeks reversal of Oceanic Bank’s sale

Ibru’s counsel, Dr. Ted Iseghohi-Edwards, argued that the bank and airline were not among the assets she forfeited to the Federal Government during her 2010 plea bargain with the government.

She had joined the Attorney-General of the Federation and the AMCON as co-defendants in the suit.

The plaintiff is, therefore, seeking a court order compelling the Federal Government to implement her plea bargain as specified in the agreement she signed with the government in 2010.
