Documents filed against Tinubu, Alpha Beta burned in court – attorney
The lawsuit brought against All Progressives Congress head Bol Tinubu and tax consulting firm Alpha Beta Consulting by former Alpha Beta CEO Dapo Apar has failed over the fire of the ‘Lagos High State Court in Igboser following #EndSARS protests.
Apara’s attorney Tade Ipadeola said this in an interview with PUNCH on Tuesday.
He said: “Everything in the Igbocer High Court was burned, including a copy of our request from the Chancellor. In fact, the entire building was reduced to ash. So, we’ll have to archive again. The magazine has been moved to Ikea.
“We may have to file a claim again with the Ikeji High Court, but we have not been asked to do so yet.”
Apara has sued Tinubu and the company’s current CEO, Akina Doherty.
In a summons marked LD / 7330GCMW / 2020, Apara asked the accused to appear within 42 days, otherwise a decision could be made in their absence.
In his complaint, Apara said that Tinubu controlled the company, which received 10% of the taxes collected on behalf of the state.
The former CEO said that as head of the company, he began to study his finances and made many amazing discoveries, such as mysterious transfers of more than 20 billion netherlands to various companies.
It said: “Payment of 550 million Namir. Ocean Trust Ltd payment video instructions from 05/15/18. Payment of 850 Million NG Payment Instructions Video Ocean Trust Ltd.
The applicant reported that 960 million nations were spent on the purchase of 300,000,000 HITV shares.
Apara said that Tinubu was furious because he studied company finance, which led to his demotion and eventually his departure.
However, tax consultancy Alpha Beta Alpha Beta LLP denied Apar’s accusations against her, adding that during his tenure as CEO, the company diverted about $ 5 million by winning a contract worth about $ 300,000 then stolen a separate N6 billion dollars for personal use.
The company said it reported the alleged fraud to Apara to the relevant authorities, but refused to appear and remained in Dubai.
The company said that Apar’s charges against Tinubu were far-fetched and distracting.
The state of Lagos, the epicenter of the #EndSARS protests, suffered massive destruction after unarmed protesters fired on Lecchi’s toll plaza on October 20, 2020.
On October 21, thugs took to the streets, burning more than 10 police stations, two media houses, private business premises, courts and government facilities, including the Nigeria Port Authority office on Lagos Island.
