Nine years after judgment, plaintiff cries out for execution

Honourable Osazee Ozigbo, a plaintiff in civil suit No. B/323/2003, against Warri Bottling Company Limited, has said that nine years after he won the case which bordered on breach of contract, he is yet to be paid the judgement sum awarded to him by a Benin High Court on March 20, 2012 by the respondent.

Ozigbo, according to the particulars of the matter, had in 2003 engaged the Warri Bottling Company Limited through its depot along Sapele Road, Benin City for the supply of 3,500 creates of its products worth N2.9 million for the defunct All Nigeria People’s Party rally.

The plaintiff contended that after effecting payment for the drinks, the Warri Bottling Company failed to supply the drinks for the occasion, a situation which necessitated court action that lasted nine years until March 2012 when judgement was delivered in favour of Osazee Ozigbo and a cost of N5 million and eight per cent monthly interest till the judgment sum is paid was awarded against the defendant.

In the judgment, the court held that “the plaintiff (Osazee Ozigbo) has successfully proved his claim of liability against the defendant ( Warri Bottling Company Limited).”

Ozigbo said that all efforts to execute the judgement on the company, either through its management staff or Board of Directors since 2012 have been unsuccessful as the company had deliberately removed its signposts and parked out of its last known addresses both in Benin City, (Edo), Warri (Delta) and Lagos states respectively.

Ozigbo lamented how he had been traumatized by the situation.

He further called on the Federal Government, as well as the Edo and Delta State governments, to rescue him from the traumatic situation by intervening as the company now claims that its properties have been sold out.
