The Family of Olowu Ogunkalu and 12 other family inOreki Village, Lagos State is calling on the DIG, Force C.I.D, Abuja, The Director of State Security Services and the Lagos State Governor as well as the Commissioner of Justice and Anthony General of Lagos to Save their souls over infringement of the rights by some Bandit sponsors, who are allegedly working with some landgrabbers in Police Uniform.

The said Bandit Sponsorers are allegedly pretending to be land grabbers but in reality what they do is using the Ogunkalu Family land that has been sold to Harmony Gardens and other assignee in Oreki as Bandit training camp where they are training Fulani Terrorists.

 

The Family decried how a billionaire fraudster who specializes in using government acquisition or land that have been excised by government to others to defraud innocent land buyers, one of who veiled as Real Estate Agent, known as Otunba Steve Ajose, and an aliens of Hong Kong origin in person of David Chang of Cento Design, who had successfully built a Land grabbing Cartel now turn to Fulani Bandit Sponsors, as well as other forms of illegal activities in Lagos.

According to a member of the Oreki family, Otunba Steve Ajose, David Chang have been using the Fulani Bandits led by one Musibau Oladiti and some illegal mobile police officers which their engagement with the Nigerian Police is also shoddy.

 

In his statement, “On behalf of the Family, Chief Semiu on behalf of the Baale of Oreki, the Head of all the families that form the Oreki Village, Chief Waliu Olowu alleged that unlawful act being perpetuating by these enemies of peace, put the community, as well as neighbouring communities in disarray, which is also a threat to justice in other parts of Lagos; and by extension, Nigeria.

 

The Family seeks to approach the Media, as an unbiased voice for the voiceless, as efforts made through many letters, protests and petitions written to the Inspector General of Police and DIG, Force C.I.D and AIG Force CID are thwarted by some ‘ Landgrabbers in police uniform’ DSP Funmi EGUAOJE PPRO attached to DCP Dayo Ariyo who is serving as DC Admins in the Honourable DIG Force C.I.D, those who have been blocking other police formation investigative activities of the Bandit Sponsors and Land grabbers in person of Otunba Steve Ajose and David Chang.

 

Among the identified Police Officers are the team led by DSP Funmi EGUAOJE of PPRO attached to the DC Admin, Dayo Ariyo; and one Mr Uba Adams, OC Zonal Monitoring at Zone 2.

 

The Head of Oreki family alleged that the cartel uses DSP Funmi EGUAOJE in conjunction with DCP Dayo Ariyo to harassing, intimidating and persecuting genuine landowners on behalf of her fellow Land grabbers and bandits-sponsors, who they work with through hijacking of cases files and truncate investigation by setting the complainants up on frivolous and malacious charges after doctoring a police report to court for no reason thereby causing breach of trust between the police and community and actions of Funmi has been causing Nigeria Police Force clash with Citizen of Ibeju Lekki where Ajose, Garba Owo-Eiye, Owolabi Sars opersted because the citizens would not really understand that DSP Funmi EGUAOJE is mere a land grabbers in police uniform.

 

For instance; one Abu, a Fulani bandits in the David Chang Bandits-sponsors camp was arrested by the community’s securities with guns and handed over to Akodo police station, only for the case to be transferred to Zonal Monitoring Command in Zone 2, where one UBA ADAMS released Abu Yakubu to the bandits Lawyers and his father who is also a commander in the camp for DSP Funmi to send the same ASP ARCHIBONG to take over the files in bids to truncate justice and use same case files to set the complainant up for kidnapping as usual as this has been Funmi and Ariyo’s way of writing falseful police investigation reports to charges innocents land owners to court.

 

Abu Yakubu that was arrested with gun was set free and ASP ARCHIBONG attached to DSP Funmi has took over files to Abuja in bids to implicate Oreki Family member and Mr Saheed of Harmony Garden and other community members”.

Semiu also narrates how the Cartel arrested and unlawfully detained the Managing Director of Harmony Garden and Estate Development Limited in the past before the DIG took over the file from Ariyo and funmi to GID.

 

According to him, “the machinery of the Cartel had demolished fences, houses of the proposed sites for the Harmony Garden and Estate Development Limited and other station the Fulani bandits with AK 47 now turn it to bandit training camp on the land.

 

In lieu of these, we beg the IGP to ask for our petitions dated Sept. 27th, 2021. One was addressed to the IG’s Office; and the other, addressed to the AIG, FCID Annex, Alagbon, Ikoyi, Lagos. Do the needful including the case pick up by one ASP ARCHIBONG from Zonal Command, Zone 2, that link Abu the bandit who has close to 19 units of AK 4 in his pocession as evident by pictures attached to this release. We as well want the IGP to withdraw the case from the present agents of the Cartel and give an unbiased officers, with proper monitoring with time frame for completion and submission.

 

It may interest you to know that the Family and our clients had initiated a legal proceedings in suits No: FHC/L/CS/1706/2021 and FHC/L/CS/1395/2022 among others and all what we are praying for is the court to compel the Nigeria Police Force to remove all the cases link Oreki Villagers, Olamuyegun and Baba Adisa from DSP Funmi EGUAOJE.

 

As the Chief Security Officer of the State, we implore Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to use the State machinery to ensure that peace continues to reign in all nooks and crannies of the State by ensuring committee. The panel of inquiry is set to look into the matter and bring all perpetrators to book, in ensuring justice prevail.

 

With the valuable resources the Sanwo-Olu Led-Administration invests to ensure that menaces of land grabbing is completely eradicated in the state, elements like Steve Ajose, and his cohort are threat to such mission”, he said.

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.
