A Federal High Court sitting in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital has slammed multiple damages against Dangote Group running to as much as 2 billion, 470 million Naira.
The judgment was given in favour of the plaintiffs:
1. QUEST TWO ENTERPRISES LIMITED, and,
2. PAUL AKANEGBU.
The defendants are:
1. Dangote Group PLC.
2. Dangote Cement PLC.
3. Obajana Cement PLC.
4. Dangote Industries LTD.
5. Jakura Marble Industry LTD.
The court ruled that Dangote Group was culpable in the act of disrupting the activities of Quest Two Enterprises Limited in the erection, installation and construction of electricity poles and other structures in a territory purportedly belonging to Dangote Group.
The presiding judge, Justice Phoebe Msuean Ayua thus held Dangote Group guilty as charged and ordered that multiple damages be paid to the plaintiffs as a deterrent to Dangote Group, viz:
i. N25 million as cost of 33KV electricity line dismantled by Dangote
ii. N1.75 million per day for work disruption and loss since February 10, 2014 amounting to almost 3 years of lost labour
iii. 10% interest per day on N1.75 million until the judgement debt is fully paid
iv. N5 million cost of litigation.
Totally, i, ii, and iv amounted to about N2.47 billion payable to the plaintiffs, Messrs. Quest Two Enterprises Limited and Mr Paul Akanegbu.
