Popular OAP, Toke Makinwa has denied reports circulating the social media that her mansion located at the exclusive Banana Island area of Lagos State, has been seized by the Asset Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON).
Earlier Nigerian Twitter went wild after some users claimed Toke Makimwa’s house was taken over by AMCON due to her inability to pay an unserviced loan.
Some fans alleged that the mansion was bought for her by Festus Fadeyi, the Chairman, Pan Ocean Oil Corporation, an indigenous oil and gas company.
However, Toke Makinwa in a statement issued by her publicist, Andrea Manuela Giaccaglia, said she is the sole owner of her Ikoyi property and that it has not been confiscated by AMCON.
The media personality threatened to take legal action against the originators of the report that her house has been taken over by AMCON.
“On behalf of Ms. Toke Makinwa, we would like to address the rumour circulating the internet that Ms. Toke Makinwa’s alleged house in Banana Island was taken over by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON),” part of the statement read.
“Ms. Toke’s is the sole owner of her residence in Ikoyi. Our lawyers have been contacted and legal action will be taken against the originators of this story. Kind Regards, Toke Makinwa’s Management.”
Below are some of the reactions tailing the report on Twitter:
Toke Makinwa was out here last week telling us marriages should have expiry date and should be subject to renewal clause after a number of years not knowing her house on Banana Island has expiry date with AMCON but not subject to renewal clause.
