A Lagos High Court sitting in Ikoyi has ordered all commercial banks in the country to furnish it with comprehensive statement of accounts 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 plaintiff’s 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 the claimants/applicants who are 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.

Adeniji, in urging the court to grant the application, argued that the reports the banks had already provided were faulty and could not be relied on.

He prayed for an order compelling the banks to furnish the court and serve the claimants’ counsel and Central Bank of Nigeria {CBN} not later than seven days from the date of receipt of the order of the court.

The items the banks are to provide include comprehensive statements of account of the 1st – 4th defendants from the 1st of January, 2020 till date and all the statements of account linked with BVN: 22168443525 {3rd Defendant} and BVN:22141952749 {4th Defendant}.

“The ‘Know Your Customer’ {KYC} duly completed forms of all the accounts in the name of the 1st – 4th defendants from the 1st of January, 2020 and all the approval and detailed information of all the foreign transactions coupled with the Telex/swift copies of all FX related transfer made by the 1st – 4th Defendants.

Others include the names, phone numbers and all the referees provided by the 1st – 4th defendants at the point of opening the accounts and all the accounts linked with BVN: 22168443525 {3rd Defendant} and BVN:22141952749 {4th Defendant}.

An order compelling the CBN to place before the court a verifying affidavit to ascertain the correctness or otherwise of all the entries in the statement of accounts, documentation and details of all transfer of funds and ‘Know Your Customer’ {KYC} forms served on it by the following commercial banks, among others.

It also includes an order directing seven United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom firms to furnish before the court and serve on the claimants’ counsel.

The firms are EMAAR Development P.J.S.C, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Quastel LLP- 54 Bakers Street, London {Jonathan Neilan}, H & S Real Estate, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, The Lagoons Phase 1, LLC, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, The ARC {EC ONE}, 225 City Road, London EC1V 1JT, Lewis Assim, London, United Kingdom and Augustine Clement Solicitors – 1, 83 Lewisham High Street, London SE13 5JX.
