A district court sitting in Abuja has ordered Zenith Bank to pay the sum of Fifty Five Million, Five Hundred and Thirty-Four Thousand, Three Hundred and Sixty-two Naira being the total sum for a contract executed by Makbio Integrated Global Limited on behalf of the National Assembly to Makbio Integrated Global Limited.




Emmanuel Okani of E.I Okani & Associates had on behalf of Makbio Integrated Global Limited initiated garnishee proceedings against several banks that the National Assembly is known to bank with, one of which was Zenith Bank before Justice Umar Isah Dodo of the District Court sitting in Abuja requesting an order compelling the Bank(s) to pay his client the said sum.

Delivering a ruling on the matter, justice Umar Isah Dodo averred that the affidavit deposed to by Zenith Bank showed clearly that it held enough funds in the account of the defendant to cover the said sum, whereupon he found ‘in the interest of justice to grant the application’ in favour of Makbio Integrated Global Limited.

Reacting to the judgement, Emmanuel Okani, counsel to Makbio Integrated Global Limited described the judgement as justice in action. He commended the Judge for showing extra ordinary courage in the face of oppression by the judgment debtor.


Makbio Integrated Global Limited had supplied IT materials to the National Assembly since 2017 in a contract worth over N55 million Naira. However, despite fulfilling its end of the contract, the National Assembly refused to pay the contractor, leaving them no other choice than to exert the said sum through other mediums.
