DISTORTED FACTS.

 

1. ORGANIZATIONS/BODIES.

 

Distorted fact:

Sixteen investigations carried out by various bodies/organizations.

 

Real fact:

Aside from the NGOs/Civil organizations led by Lemmy Ughegbe, FCCPC interviewed Keren’s mum in their office, QA Department in FCT interviewed her (also visited her house a couple of times), she reported to the FCT Command as well as the FCIID so she has been in contact with them. There was no feedback from FCCPC or QA. Maybe there was one to the school which gives her the confidence that she was not indicted.

 

(2) WHEN WAS KEREN IN DISTRESS AND UNABLE TO WALK?

 

Distorted fact:

Keren walked out of the school gate herself on the 19/6/21 and her mother alleged she was not able to walk.

 

Real fact:

Check all interviews granted by Keren’s mum or the coalition there have been no mention of Keren being unable to walk on 19/6/21. It has been consistently reported that Keren was in distress and could not walk to school on Wednesday, 16th June, 2021 in fact she wrote her test crying on that day as reported by her House mother – Rita Adejide reported to me on 19/6/21 that I should disregard the Matron’s report that Keren was okay and the school can handle her. She advised Keren’s mum to make a lot of noise at the gate and ensure that she takes her home because Keren could not walk on her own to school, had to be supported by her friends to write a test crying on 16/6/21 (Wednesday).

 

3. CCTV FOOTAGE.

 

Distorted fact:

CCTV Footage of Keren from the 17th to 19th June, 2021 is what the school is putting out there.

 

Real fact:

CCTV footage of 15th – 19th is what Keren’s family and the coalition of GBV CSOs asked for. However, since the school is referring to 12th may 2021, footages of 12/5/21 (when it is alleged her uncle picked her) to 19/06/21 (when she was released to her mother) should be provided.

 

(4) RAPE WAS OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL PREMISES.

 

Distorted fact:

Keren, if raped it would have been during the Salah period when she went home so her uncle and brothers friends should be investigated.

 

Real fact:

Keren was raped: A discharge from Keren was tested to be condom and her urine sample revealed dead spermatozoa in it 28 days after she was returned to school. Medical practitioners will confirm that it is impossible for dead spermatozoa to be seen in urine 28 days after it was deposited in the body.

 

5. BIRTHDAY “PARTY” OF 10/04/21

 

Distorted fact:

Her uncle organized a birthday party for her and took her to the party.

 

Real fact:

There was no party organized by her uncle or anybody on 10th April 2021 rather it was a get together with her friends to mark her birthday where everybody catered for themselves. Her uncle did not sponsor the party, did not drop her at the venue and was nowhere near there. Her elder brother, Joash escorted her using a bolt taxi to the venue and brought her back. Of what significance is a party that happened 2 months 12 days before her death? Trying to drift away from the issue at hand.

 

6. SALAH BREAK.

Distorted fact:

The same uncle picked Keren on the 12th of May 2021 for the Salah break leaving her brother behind to observe the break in school.

 

Real fact:

Keren was picked by her mother on Friday, 14th May 2021. She did not leave the school on 12th May 2021 as alleged by the school. This was because her mum had asked them to stay back and read in school since it was a break for Moslems. On Friday, she called the acting principal Mr. Christopher Akinsowon seeking permission to visit with them and give them some home food. The Principal commended her saying she was an exemplary parent and said, “she is the kind of parent he likes to deal with”. Furthermore, he asked that she should not bring too much food for them. It was Mr. Chuka Okarfor that helped call Keren and Joash to the Tech Lab where the mum and her brother, who drove her were waiting for them. Keren’s mum noticed Keren had a red eye and called the clinic Matron whom though she wasn’t in school, arranged an exeat to allow her take Keren home for medical attention. This exeat was prepared under five (5) minutes. Keren was returned to school on 23rd May 2021 by her mother in great condition.

 

7.GUARDIAN OF MY KIDS

Keren’s uncle ( her mum’s brother) who has been living in Abuja before her mum was transferred to Abuja, has always been the Guardian of my kids. From 2014 to date. She was working away from Abuja and was only transferred to Abuja in December of 2020.

 

Signed:

Vivien Akphager,

Keren’s mother.

One day, he was sleeping on the bed in his room, he did not lock the door, he only locked the net outside. When I wanted to enter, I used knife to cut the net and I unlocked it.

 

When I entered his room, I saw him sleeping naked on the bed lying face down and I landed the cutlass I was holding at the back this neck. When I saw that he was trying make noise, I used pillow to cover his mouth and used the cutlass on him again.

 

After killing him, I took part of his blood and mixed it to prepare “Osole”, money ritual charm. I made the charm to sell it to customers who will be interested in it, I did not do it for myself.”

BUA Group Threatens To Sue GREENVILLE LNG Gas Company – For Breach Of Multimillion Dollar Contract

Published

on

Two years after it was slammed with a $9m claim for breaching contract by a US Court, Greenville LNG company is on the brink of another lawsuit in its supply dealings with Nigerian-based manufacturing giant, BUA Group.

 

Owned by Eddy Van Den Broeke , a Belgian cement magnate, *Greenville* is the pioneer Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production and distribution company in Nigeria with three liquefaction trains and a total capacity to produce 2250 MT of LNG per day.

 

The company, which was incorporated in 2013, prides itself for producing and marketing Liquefied Natural Gas to customers across Nigeria since April 2019.

 

It should be noted that the company is a Nigerian subsidiary of the International Engineering & Construction (IEC), a Luxembourg-based construction company.

 

However, in 2018, there were reports of how *Broeke* was struggling to get his LNG project off the ground in Nigeria and also facing a $9m claim from his subcontractor Baker Hughes.

 

How it started

 

In 2014, IEC through Greenville LNG entered into an agreement with Baker Hughes Energy Services LLC, formerly known as GE Oil & Gas (GEOG), for the purchase and installation of two small-scale liquified natural gas plants in Rumuji, Rivers State, Nigeria.

 

According to the documents obtained by POLITICS NIGERIA, GEOG agreed to supply IEC with two small-scale liquified natural gas production plants — the first by June 24, 2015, and the second by September 24, 2015— for use at the Rumuji Site.

 

In exchange, IEC agreed to pay GEOG $95 million. Both parties also agreed on a payment schedule, which would require IEC to pay various percentages of the $95 million at specific milestones.

 

It was stated that the agreement would be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of New York.

 

Unfortunately, GEOG failed to deliver the gas plants by their contractual delivery deadlines and this stalled installation, commissioning, and start-up of the Plants.

 

Arbitration

 

On July 31, 2018, IEC filed a Notice of Demand for and Commencement of Arbitration under the Contracts on behalf of itself and Greenville.

 

IEC initially sought approximately $75 million in damages but its demand increased to $700 million by the end of the arbitration.

 

The $700m claims included the liquidated damages for delayed delivery and damages associated with the delayed entry into operation of the gas plants.

 

But GEOG also filed counterclaims against IEC for breach of the contracts, asking for damages up to $40.1 million.

 

In 2020, the American Tribunal gave its verdict, ordering IEC and Greenville to pay GEOG over $9.5m for breaching contracts.

 

The Tribunal held that IEC had breached the Equipment Contract by failing to make two Milestone payments.

 

Dissatisfied with the judgement, On January 27, 2021, IEC filed a petition to vacate the Award in New York state court but the court rejected IEC’s arguments.

 

“In short, due to the strong deference owed to the decisions of arbitrators, the Court is compelled to reject IEC’s arguments and confirm the Award,” the court ruled.

 

*Poor Ethics/Underhand Business Practices*

 

It is believed that the posture of the company and record of breaching contract is owing to its owner’s secretive and shady business activities. Prior to setting up Greenville, Eddy Van Den Broeke ran ASCA bitumen from 1996 and grew the company into becoming a giant monopoly with over 90% of the Nigerian market by 2015.

 

Through this position, he was famed to hold everyone to ransom through alleged arbitrary price increases, artificial scarcity, amongst others. Eddy Broeke’s families were one of six of Belgium’s wealthiest families that featured on the Panama Papers, a cross-border investigation that revealed a list of thousands of people who channelled funds to tax havens.

 

“The family of *Eddy* *Van* *Den* *Broeke* , who turned the Eres company into an international player, is also mentioned. Eddy Van Den Broeke is identified as the sole beneficiary of at least five offshore companies in the BVI,” the ICIJ report read.

 

Eddy was named in the Panama Papers having had an extensive network of shell companies to hide his funds and avoid government oversight.

 

*Another multi-million dollar breach of contract suit looming*

 

Our investigations also revealed that recently, BUA, which is one of Greenville’s largest clients, is set to sue Greenville for 50 billion Naira for a possible breach in contract and reneging on its obligation to supply gas to its businesses in the far north.

 

According to sources, this dispute is as a result of Greenville LNG reneging on their contract with BUA to supply gas and also increasing prices arbitrarily despite the contractually agreed oil-indexed pricing for any changes in price.

 

Industry watchers1 have claimed that Greenville is trying to take advantage of its near monopoly in the domestic trucked LNG market hence their habit of entering into contracts and reneging on it after starting.

 

With Eddy and his companies’ history of reneging on contracts entered into with the Federal Government, partners, suppliers, communities and clients, it is unlikely that Greenville LNG or its billionaire owner *Eddy* and Managing Director , *Ritu* *Sahajwalla* would stop such behaviour anytime soon.

 

Experts familiar with BUA’s history of ensuring its rights are enforced, believe BUA will pursue this issue to a logical conclusion at the courts and till their rights are enforced.
