“To date, the decrees remain unsettled and continues to accrue interests and no plausible reason in law has been given by the company for failing to pay the decretal sum. Indeed the company’s directors have adopted a rather carefree attitude and appear to abuse the Petitioner’s goodwill in the matter”, the petitioners told the court.

They added that the decretal sum is not disputed and has been due and payable in full since the judgments were issued on February 6 this year.

Despite all the court orders, the company is yet to pay the decretal sum.
