Nwankwo Kanu Laments Over Alleged Illegal Takeover Of His Hotel

Former Super Eagles Captain, Nwankwo Kanu, almost broke down in tears following the fate of his property, Hardley Apartments, which is now under renovation by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria, (AMCON).
The property, located at No. 46 Waziri Ibrahim Crescent, Victoria Island, Lagos is owned by Kanu, but has been put under the temporary possession of AMCON by an ex parte order of a court on account of indebtedness.
A clearly unhappy Kanu told pressmen that the case between him and AMCON has been on since 2015 at the Federal High Court Ikoyi, Lagos.
He further said he did not understand why AMCON would start renovating his property when the court has not decided the case.
In a chat with Complete Sports, Kanu said:
“I was notified that my hotel (Hardley Apartments) is currently under renovation when the case is still in court.”
“I came here to establish that my property has been taken over while the case is still in court. Ideally, nobody should be allowed into the premises since the matter is still in court, but this is different.
“I have served this country for over 16 years winning laurels and this premises housed all my medals which I won during my playing career, the Olympic torch which I carried in honour of the country in 2012, and memorable pictures are all here but I hope they are not all gone.”
“They should please hand them over to me because my kids will need to see them for posterity.”
“For three years this place was  locked up, and that has deprived 528 kids an opportunity to receive good medical health care.  They should not jump the gun nor pre-empt the court verdict.”
