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:
So it’s Festus Fadeyi! Interesting. I remember his children called out Toke Makinwa few years ago to leave their father alone. That the man was spending a lot of money on her while being heavily indebted to Skye Bank. Kai. Men are Scum.

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.

Toke Makinwa was broke shaming people the other day while living in a house that was bought on credit by someone's Dad. Now they've collected the house and Sis have suddenly turned to a motivational speaker.
Nothing in this life is eternal. Be humble!!!

If you actually believed Toke Makinwa bought a house in Banana Island, the joke really is on you. Do you know how much houses there cost? What business did she do to be able to afford it? When you ask these questions, you're termed a hater. No wahala

KanyiDaily recalls that Toke Makinwa had advised women who get wooed often by married men to ”chop their money and run away”.
She told single women that the next time they come by a man who is confident to reveal this marriage status while attempting to cheat, they should go ahead and enjoy his money before making an escape.
