Court Freezes Accounts of Aliko Dangote's Younger Brother and Dansa Foods In 20 Banks

Posted in: , , ,

Aliko Dangote's younger brother, Sani Dangote, has had all his accounts frozen due to non-payment of bank loans. A Federal High Court in Lagos yesterday ordered 20 Commercial banks in Nigeria to dishonour all withdrawal cheques from Sani Dangote and his companies, Dansa Foods Limited and Bulk Pack Services Limited from September 4th until the 11th.

Punch reports that the high court judge, Justice Okon Abang, gave the order while presiding over a case brought against Dangote by Union Bank. Union Bank had dragged him and his companies to court over alleged refusal to pay up the N5.2bn loan granted his company since September, 2008.

The bank, through its lawyer, Mr. Chukwudi Enebeli had instituted suits seeking an order of mareva injunction to restrain all the defendants’ banks in Nigeria, from allowing Mr Dangote and his companies to withdraw funds from their accounts pending the determination of the suits.
