An ex-parte order granted to AMCON by the court following allegation of indebtedness against Kanu and the hotel management had put Hardley Suites at 46, Waziri Ibrahim Crescent, Victoria Island, Lagos under the temporary possession of the former.

The former footballer in a statement he released on Thursday, drew the attention of the public to alleged plan to totally take the hotel from him despite the fact that the matter is unresolved by the court.

The statement reads: “While I remain resolute in my decision to respect the sanctity of our law courts, I am however constrained to issue this statement to call on well-meaning Nigerians and all men/women of good conscience around the globe to prevail on AMCON to do same.

“This has become necessary in the light of some bizarre actions of self-help embarked upon by AMCON in vandalising/stripping the assets, under the guise of renovations, but ostensibly with a clandestine design to brazenly sell or hand it to a third party under secret terms and thus complicate/further stall this matter.”

The matter will come up for hearing before a Federal High Court on February 14.
