Haulage companies sue firm over non-payment for services rendered

By Innocent Anaba

Three haulage services companies, Kobbs Global Services Nigeria Limited, BJA Global Solutions Limited and Minmax Universal Concept Limited, have filed three different suits against Murphy Express Logistics Limited before a Rivers State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, claiming various sums of money as payment for services rendered for which they have not been paid.

Kobbs Global Services Nigeria Limited is claiming N18.174 million, being the total sum owed by the defendant to the claimant by virtue of trucking services rendered to the defendant at the instance of the defendant and 10 percent post-judgment interest sums representing 10 percent interest on the judgment sum until it is paid up

BJA Global Solutions Limited is claiming N11.179 million being the total sum owed by the defendant to the claimant by virtue of trucking services rendered to the defendant and 10 percent post-judgment interest sums representing 10 percent interest on the judgment sum until it is paid up.

Minmax Universal Concept Limited is claiming N18.126 million being the total sum owed by the defendant to the claimant by virtue of trucking services rendered to the defendant and 10 percent post-judgment interest sums representing 10 percent interest on the judgment sum until it is paid up.

Meanwhile, Murphy Express Logistics Limited is yet to file its defence to the suits.

At the hearing in the BJA Global Solutions Limited N11.179m suit, yesterday, the court adjourned to January 17, 2018 for judgment.

The Kobbs Global Services Nigeria Limited N18.174m suit is coming up tomorrow, while the Minmax Universal Concept Limited N18.126m suit is slated for January.

BJA Global Solutions Limited in an affidavit in support of the suit by its Managing Director, Mr Bamidele Adekoya, averred that his company had rendered haulage services to the defendant’s Port Harcourt office at its instance for value.

According to him, “The defendant makes the request for our services through one of three officers, and among many other services for which we have been paid either within the time or after the 30 days duration, we carried out services for the defendant which were covered by the following Invoices and Waybills.

“The total value of our unpaid invoices is N18,174.550m and  we have made several demands on them to pay us the sums owed and that it was upon their consistent refusal to pay the sums owed that we briefed our solicitors, to write a letter to them demanding the sums owed and they are yet to pay us,” he further averred.
