According to Ucheibe, Raymond Aliga acquired the title after ASOPADEC sold the said property to a certain Enjoy International Limited.


“In 1997, the land was allocated to Late Captain Joe Igboamaghi Agu, who paid all statutory fees”


“In 2007, the then government under Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, directed that the land be sold to SLOCK Nigeria Limited”


“However, this was wrong because the late Captain Joe Kalu Igboamaghi Agu was the owner of No:12A Okpara Avenue, meanwhile the then governor’s directive was to sell No: 12 Okpara Avenue”
