Emirates Airline owe N8.1 million as Lagos Court orders detention



Justice Mohammed Liman of the Lagos Federal High Court has ordered the detention of Emirates Airline’s Airbus aircraft in Lagos following over N8.1 million ($22,103) in judgment debt.

The order was sequel to a motion filed by Dr Charles Mekwunye seeking for the enforcement of a Supreme Court judgment in a suit between Promise Mekwunye and the airline. Justice Liman also ordered that Emirates Airline shall bear the cost of maintenance and custody of the detained aircraft.

“It is accordingly ordered that an attachment is hereby issued on the judgment debtor’s aircraft registered as ‘A6 Aircraft Type 77W EK: 783/784’, or any other aircraft belonging to the judgment debtor which flies into Nigeria Territory, to be arrested and detained until the judgment debt is fully paid: in default after 30 days, the aircraft shall be auctioned to satisfy the judgment debt.” Justice Liman ruled.
