According to The PUNCH, hotel manager Emmanuel Idoga filed a court case against Lobi Stars FC management on Wednesday for alleged hotel debt of N516,000.

Idoga, the owner of Dozat Jen Villa in Makurdi, said that all efforts to recover the money had been unsuccessful. He was represented by attorney Unongo Unongo.

Unongo asserted that his client was the manager and owner of the hotel company Dozat Jen Villa Makurdi, where the defendant lived and withheld payment.

He claimed that on March 16 and March 17, 2020, the players remained at the hotel.

The attorney continued by saying that three other team members stayed at the hotel for two months without paying.

Additionally, he said that he sent the defendant a number of letters.

He stated, “On June 29, 2021, my client sent the first letter, but there was no answer.”

Unongo further stated that he will depend on the letter that was sent to the defendant on June 29, 2021, at the hearing.

He requested that the court issue an N516,000 judgment against the defendant.

Additionally, he asked the court for N1 million in general damages, N $50,000 for the filing fee, and any other orders it saw fit.

The defense attorney requested substituted service on the defendant after alleging that the defendant was avoiding being served.

In her decision, the Magistrate Dooshima Ikpambese mandated substituted service on the defendant.

“According to the court’s records, attempts to personally serve the defendant on June 14 and June 15 were unsuccessful.

“Therefore, a substituted service order is hereby given.

“The defendant shall be served by pasting the orders of the court, writ of summons, hearing notices, and all other subsequent processes of this court at the entrance of the McCarty Stadium Wadata, Makurdi, and Aper Aku Stadium Makurdi and entrance door of Upper 2, Makurdi,” she held.

Ikpambese further adjourned the case until July 11 for further mention.
