A former Air Nigeria Executive Director of Finance, Mr. John I. Nnorom, has written to the House of Representatives about how business mogul Jimoh Ibrahim fraudulently acquired Air Nigeria with a Bank of Industry loan of N35.5Billion, and has sustained a pattern of manipulation, money-laundering, and forgery.

“[Ibrahim] did not invest one single kobo in the Airline,” he said in the gripping account which was sent to the Chairman of the Committee on Privatization, on the subject of the businessman’s application to acquire Virgin Nigeria when it was on the verge of a financial crisis.

“What UBA did was to grant him loan amounting to N35.5Billion that is the equal to the amount being owed by old virgin Nigeria Ltd, with three properties whose market values were less than N15Billion. The properties are 159/160 Broad Street, Lagos, Nigeria Re-insurance Corporate Head Office building at Marina Street, Lagos and Nicon Insurance Corporate Head Office building in Abuja. The actual market value of these properties at that time was about N15Billion but Jimoh Ibrahim presented a forged valuation report to UBA worth N75Billion.” Continue reading
