Indian Family Stopped From Taking Over 3 Companies Owned By Nigerian Businessman & Wife

A Federal High Court in Lagos today  restrained three Indians from taking over three firms – Bolawole Enterprises Nigeria Ltd, Lesag Nigeria Ltd and Intermanagement Nigeria Ltd, allegedly owned by Oluwole Oginni and his wife, Mobolatan.

Vacation judge Justice Nicholas Oweibo made the interim order following an ex parte application by Mr Oginni, 87, in a suit marked FHC/L/CS/1431/2019.

The Indian nationals, who are also first to third respondents in the suit, are: Mr. Jai Bhagwan Gupta, and his two sons, Vineet Gupta and Rachit Gupta.

Justice Oweibo also restrained the respondents from convening any meeting at Mushin; Sheraton Hotel, lkeja or at Victoria Island, all in Lagos, for the removal of the couple as the firm’s Directors pending the hearing and determination of the originating summons.

The judge made the interim orders after hearing the Octogenarian, through his counsel, Mr. Yakubu Galadima.

Oginni had claimed that without his consent or a board resolution to that effect, the Indians sometime in November, 2017 illegally removed and changed the signatory to the corporate accounts of the firms.

He also averred that the Indians had, by a Notice of Extra Ordinary General Meeting scheduled to take place on August 21, 22 and 23, respectively, proposed to remove him and his wife as a director and to strip them of their membership of the firms.

The judge fixed September 5 to hear the substantive suit.

  1. Nigerians should stop doing business with Indians, these entities are selfish.
    Their men sleep with our girls and give them peanuts. They borrow us money and collect back triple fold.

    • Really? They are selfish because they sleep with your girls and give them peanuts. Maybe your girls should stop sleeping for money- prostitution and go out to do a decent days work.

      Label a whole country of over a billion because of d actions of a few. Wonder how you feel when you get labelled a con artist or a drug pusher because you are Nigerian.
