Edmark alleges Bias by Hon Justice C. J Aneke in Etim Maurice Anthony V Edmark Marketing Ltd, writes Chief Judge

A popular multi-level marketing company, Edmark Direct Marketing Limited, has accused a presiding judge of the Federal high court Ikeja Division, Hon. Justice C. J Aneke of bias.

 

Justice Aneke had in the case of Etim Maurice Anthony vs Edmark Direct Marketing Limited granted an ex-parte order to a petitioner who is just a 5% shareholder of the Company on 14th of May 2022.

In a letter addressed to the honourable chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Hon. Justice John Termhemba Tsoho, the Chairman of Edmark Group of Companies, Sam Low Ban Chai is asking the Chief Judge to urgently save his company by reassigning the matter to another Judge for a fair determination of the suit.

Narrating the injustice done to him, Mr. Chai stated that his company has been shut down since the 22nd of June 2022 when the ex-parte order was executed and same has caused irreparable damages, despite the judge’s knowledge of a pending appeal.

Mr. Chai lamented that Justice Aneke also imposed a manager/receiver on the company. A move which was against the standard procedure, as the company was neither insolvent nor was, he, bankrupt, for it to be handed over to a third party who was also a cohort to the petitioner. This is aside the court order freezing all the company’s bank accounts.

According to him the court has empowered a debtor to take over the company. Upon several application by the respondent, one of which is an objection challenging the jurisdiction of the court to the suit and withdrawal of the ex-parte order granted on the 14th May 2022, the judge had refused to hear or give audience to them, while attending to all applications filed by the petitioner with swiftness and uncommon speed.

He further lamented that “Since the 22nd of June 2022, the respondent investment has been completely shut down and paralyzed by ex-parte order of the court without an end in sight. The respondent expatriate-staff has since left Nigeria upon actual threat to their lives by the petitioner and some of which have not agreed to come back to attend to their specialized functions.

The respondent has continued to record huge losses on a daily basis without a justifiable reason and over 22,000 distributors of the respondent healthy live products and their families and their dependents have been rendered jobless by the ex-parte order. The multi-billion naira building/structure that actively ongoing at lekki, Lagos, Nigeria has been abandoned; contracts cancelled and facilities are in waste as a result of the undeserved ex-parte order of the Honourable court. The Respondent imported products with expiry dates are wasting and gathering huge demurrage at the Nigerian Port Authority and in ware houses”.
