Earlier today June 23, 2016, Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) took over the Silverbird Galleria, Victoria Island, Lagos as well as other assets of three companies belonging to politician and entertainment investor, Ben Murray-Bruce and his brothers, Guy Murray-Bruce,
AMCON is now seizing the assets belonging to the three companies used in securing the loan – Silverbird Productions Limited, Silverbird Showtime Limited and Silverbird Galleria Limited.
The assets are being seized following the failure of Murray-Bruce and his brothers to settle an N11 billion loan owed Union Bank and acquired by AMCON. His son, Jonathan Murray-Bruce is also listed as a defendant in the default suit.
Reactions have begun to pour in alongside prayers and thoughts towards Ben Bruce, the ‘common sense’ man who couldn’t pay his bills.
