AMCON Takes Over Abdulfatah Ahmed’s Mansion

The statement read in part, “AMCON on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, in Ilorin, the Kwara State, capital took over the palatial mansion of Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, the former two-time governor of Kwara State over a staggering indebtedness of nearly N5bn.

“Justice Liman also ordered the freezing of the bank accounts of the former governor and his two companies, including Trans Properties and Investment Limited and Trans It Consulting Limited in Suit No: FHC/L/AMC/01/2021.

“The former governor who is one of the founders of the newly established third force in Nigerian politics known as the Rescue Nigeria Project, is one of the high-profile obligors of AMCON. Despite holding one of the highly exalted political offices in the land, he remained recalcitrant over the repayment of his obligation.”

AMCON said it had taken over the non-performing loans of the former governor and his companies, Trans Properties and Investment Limited and Trans It Consulting Limited, from the former Intercontinental Bank, FinBank and Bank PHB during the first phase of EBA purchases, in line with its mandate under the AMCON Act.

“All efforts to peacefully resolve the loan had been frustrated by the former governor who remained recalcitrant, which left AMCON with no other choice but to seek justice in court.

“This action is in line with Section 49 (1) of the AMCON Act 2019 (As Amended)”, he said.
