Nigerian crooner, Oladapo Oyebanjo, also known as D’banj has been dragged to court by a company known as Mindhub technologies, according to a court summons pasted at the premises of the “Oliver Twist” singer.
A court summons is usually pasted at the premises of a party to a suit if the court officials have exhausted all efforts to serve the court documents on the party personally either because he has been evading service or out of jurisdiction. In situations like that the court will give an order that the summons be pasted at the last known address of the party.
Mindhub Technologies is a Nigerian agricultural engineering company “actively engaged in both agricultural and industrial machinery, plant engineering and projects in Nigeria”, according to the company’s website.
It is alleged that the summons is over a N60m loan given to the singer by the Plaintiff company.
The summons and accompanying documents were pasted at D’Banj’s residence on Osaro Isokpan Street in Lekki Phase 1 by a court bailiff on December 17, 2014 at about 1:35p.m, pursuant to order of court made on November 12, 2014 having been satisfied that the defendant was evading being served the notice.
The case is filed in court with suit number: LD/ADR/445/14 with hearing expected to commence on Monday, January 26, 2015 Lagos Island Division of the Lagos State High Court with Justice Mrs Oyebanji as the presiding judge.
