Ben Murray-Bruce 'recovers' Silverbird from AMCON

It seems an agreement has been reached by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) with the Management of Silverbird Communications Limited.

The debt recovery institution has withdrawn from the premises of the SilverBird group, effectively allowing them to carry on normal business activities.

The Silverbird group is run by a known critic of the APC-led government, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce and his family.

Consequently, the Management of Silverbird on Friday tendered apologies to its viewers and listeners over their television.

The Silverbird Galleria on Lagos Island was under lock on Thursday when policemen barricaded all properties belonging to Silverbird Group owned by the group for an alleged N11 billion owed AMCON.

According to a statement from the management of Silverbird Communications said “The Management of Silverbird Communications Limited, owners of Rhythm F.M and Silverbird TV sincerely apologise to its numerous viewers, listeners
and on line subscribers over the disruption of our operations across Television, Radio and online Media.

This was due to a situation beyond our control, however, we are pleased to inform you that we are back on air on Radio Television and on our on line platform.
