N11.79b Scam: Court Orders Banks To Provide Ajetunmobi Couple Account Statements

The Ajetunmobis are said to be on the run.


A Lagos High Court in Ikoyi has ordered all commercial banks to furnish it with the comprehensive statements of the account of Imagine Global Holding Company Limited, Imagine Global Solutions Limited and a couple, Bamise and Elizabeth Ajetunmobi within seven days.

Justice Oyekan-Abdullahi made the order sequel to a motion filed and argued by the plaintiffs’ counsel, Adetunji Adedoyin-Adeniyi of AAA Chambers.

The two firms and the Ajetunmobi couple have been associated with an N11,795,090,000 investment scam, by aggrieved Nigerian investors.

According to the plaintiffs’ motion, the N11.795b is the outstanding investments and return on investments accruing to them from the defendants.
