Top Entertainment personality and Chief Executive Officer of HipTV and Smooth Promotions, Mr Ayo Animashaun has dragged Heritage Bank to court.
According to him he has been having a running battle with the bank for the past two years and now has decided to seek the intervention of the judiciary.
In a telephone conversation with the The Boss Animashaun told us that the matter had to do with fund taken from the bank to purchase an Outside Broadcasting Van.
He stated that the bank reneged on its agreement and wanted payment for service not done.
On the issue of his company being under receivership, he refused to comment but told us that the matter will be dealt with by the court.
He also took to Facebook to also comment on the matter;
” So I wanted you to hear it directly from me: I have just instructed my lawyers Kemi Pinheiro LP, to file a suit at the federal high court in Lagos, against Heritage Bank.
“I have spent over two years doing all I can to resolve this as quietly as possible, But I am now left with no choice but to use every available legal means to protect my reputation, secure my business, and get the redress and compensation I deserve. Heritage bank has consistently lied to us, defrauded us, and they’re now attempting to twist the facts to make us look like the bad guys.
“I have spent the past 25 years of my life building a name and business; and we have been nothing but responsible corporate citizens. I know many entrepreneurs complain about Nigerian banks and how they do nothing but try to kill us. But this particular bank picked the wrong candidate. I will not rest until I get justice and I just want to thank everyone who’s called me; and plead that you please understand that I may not be able to comment about the matter after this post, as the matter will now be in court. I will provide further update as soon as I am allowed to”
