Ecobank had instituted a debt recovery suit against the company following its failure to repay an N25billion loan facility for the importation and local purchase of petroleum products.
The bank, through its Solicitors, Olisa Agbakoba Legal had also secured an order for the issuance of a bankruptcy notice against the Managing Director of Rahamaniyya, Alhaji Musa Bashir, based on his guarantee to repay the loans.
The suit, instituted by the bank, seeks amongst other things to enforce collateral agreements, wind up the company for inability to pay its debts.
