Nigerian writer and businesswoman, Toke Makinwa has debunked rumors surrounding the forfeiture of her Banana Island property to the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria, AMCON.
Yesterday, July 27, Nigeria-Twitter went wild after some users of the app claimed that her “Ikoyi property” had been taken over by AMCON.
However, a statement released last night by her publicist, Andrea Manuela Giaccaglia, states that Toke is the sole owner of her Ikoyi property and that it has not been confiscated by AMCON.
The statement adds that legal action will be taken against the originators of the false report.
The statement reads;
