Ecobank stated that it had a lawsuit against the firm, which might lead to the winding up of Honeywell’s assets. Recall that both Honeywell and Ecobank have been in a legal battle over an unpaid debt of N5.5 billion.

According to a majority stakeholder in Honeywell, Oba Otudeko the debt is owed by Anchorage Leisures Limited, Siloam Limited, and Honeywell Flour Mills Plc.

He told the Appeal Court that as of December 12, 2013, his firms had paid N3.5 billion, which the billionaire stated was the full and final payment for the N5.5 billion debt, which both parties agreed on during a meeting on July 22, 2013.
