Court awards Rev. Fr. Mbaka N5.5Bn in suit against Union Bank

by on February 15, 2017
Fiery Catholic Priest and the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry in Enugu, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka, has described his legal victory over Union Bank Plc as di­vine and miraculous.
The Enugu-based cleric had been in court with the bank over some disputed financial transactions.
In its judgement in the case with suit No E/56/10, an Enugu State High Court awarded the sum of N5.5 billion in favour of Mbaka.
Reacting to the verdict on Tuesday through a statement jointly signed by his Media Aide, Mr Ike Maximus Ugwuoke and one of his counsels, Mr F C Okeke, Mba­ka urged the bank to speedy action in paying the judgement debt.
The statement reads: “With boundless joy, we glorify the name of God for the miraculous legal victory He grant­ed Adoration Ministry Enugu, over the case filed against the Spiri­tual Director of the Ministry, Rev Fr Ejike Camilus Mbaka and two others by Union Bank of Nigeria Plc.
“The case filed in suit No E/56/10 has been pending before the Enugu State High Court for about seven years until judgment was delivered therein on Thursday, February 9, 2017 by Justice A R Ozoemena of the Enu­gu State High Court.
“The erudite judg­ment of the court de­clined virtually all the contumacious claims of the bank against our Spiritual Director de­claring them as ‘fraud­ulent’ but went ahead to order the bank in his counter claim against the bank to pay him the sum of N5.5billion for damages and inconve­niences.
“It is noteworthy that the court in the said judgment considered, among other things, the fact that Union Bank had defended our Spiri­tual Director in a sepa­rate suit filed against the bank by a Chinese company at the Lagos State High Court in suit No LD/1313/10 where­in in the bank’s counter affidavit, the bank had deposed that Rev Fr Mbaka is not indebted to the Chinese com­pany.”
