Ex Super Eagles Star and Football Legend, Kanu Nwankwo has called on the general public to come to his aid to persuade AMCON to respect Court orders and release his properties.
In a statement by the ex-international footballer, he said it is no longer news that his property, known as Herdly Apartments located at Victoria Island Lagos, has been put under temporary possession of AMCON on account of purported indebtedness which he says has remained unproven since November 2015 till date.
Kanu’s emotional release explained that Kanu Heart Foundation is seriously threatened, because since he retired as a footballer, Hardly Apartments has been the source of funding for the Foundation. The take-over of the hostel by AMCON has denied his foundation its financial lifeline.
He also pointed out that some properties in the hotel have been vandalized, just as there are attempts by AMCON to give it to a third party to run.
He called on well-meaning Nigerians to intervene. “As I issue this statement, my heart bleeds, it bleeds indeed, profusely not just because my priced possession which emerged out of my blood and sweat as a footballer is at the risk of being taken away, under the weight of an intractable/belligerent government apparatus unjustifiably, but because of the imminent defeat of the purpose if its establishment which is to save lives,” he explained.
