Kanu raises alarm over seized Hardly Apartments

Former Super Eagles Captain, Nwankwo Kanu has raised an alarm over the fate of his property, Hardly Apartments which has been put under the temporary possession of AMCON by an ex-parte order of a court on account of a purported indebtedness.

In a statement issued in Lagos, Kanu accused AMCON of inducing the protracted nature of proceedings “due to their refusal/inability to obey specific order of court to provide the full statements of accounts, by which they came to the position of the purported indebtedness.”

The 1996 Olympic gold medallist said the statement had become necessary, “in the light of some bizarre actions of self-help/recklessness embarked upon by AMCON in vandalising/stripping assets, under the guise of renovations, but ostensibly with a clandestine design to brazenly sell or hand it to a third party.”

He explains further, “as I issue this statement, my heart bleeds for several reasons. Not just because my priced possession which emerged out of my blood and sweat as a career footballer is at the risk of being taqken away from me under the weight of an intractable government apparatus.”
