Following the taken-over of Silverbird Galleria by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON), the Chairman of Silverbird Group, Senator Ben Murray Bruce has assured that the issue will be resolved as soon as possible. The Common Sense Advocate confirmed this in twitter handle, @MurrayBenBruce that he just flew into the country and the issue will be addressed soon.
According to the tweet, “I have been on an international flight and have only just landed. The situation is being resolved and things will be back to normal,” Bruce disclosed. AMCON had taken over three of the politician’s assets – Silverbird Productions Limited, Silverbird Showtime Limited and Silverbird Galleria Limited – due to failure to settle an N11 billion loan.
The properties include those at 133, Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos, Plot No 1161 (Silverbird Galleria), the plaza at Central Area Cadastral Zone, Abuja, and the magnificent structure located at Abonnema Wharf Road and Abali Park in Port Harcourt.
