Mr Emmango was paid the total of four thousand dollars($4000) on 4th January 2005 to ship a 1998 and a 1999 Kia Spotage suvs, and a 1994 Nissan Quest van to Lagos Nigeria West Africa. He promised that those vehicles would be delivered to my agent in Lagos within 4-6 weeks, he signed a mini-contract to that effect that he was only responsible for shipping only, that I and my agent would do the custom clearing ourselves. After eight weeks no information from Emmango and my agent and I were jittery, I called Emmango who told me all sort of stories about the whereabout of the vehicles, one time he said the vehicles were mistakenly taken to a neighboring country of Benin Republic. This went on for another 3-4 months, we requested a bill of ladding but to no avail, upon Houston Police intervention we were given a copy of bill of ladding not consigned to us but to one Mr Paul Chisom Ohakwe by another company in the name of AA Shipping in Houston whose Emmango used to ship and the fact emerged that the vehicles were infact shipped from Houston Texas on 04/06/05 and scheduled to arrive Lagos Nigeria on 04/07/05 to a non existing address. This information was reported to my agent in Nigeria who reported this to the police and we were advised that the address did not exist. Mr Ohakwe got in touch with my agent by phone but never turned up for their meetings, he and Mr Anyantonwu kept asking for another two million naira(#2m=US$18000) local currency for custom clearance contrary to our contractual agreement that we haold do our own clearing. My Agent and I refused to pay as we already got a cheaper estimate of half of their quotation for custom clearing fees and if we were to pay we had to meet face to face with Mr Ohakwe, he never showed up. Much later One Mr Augustine Anyantonwu, Emmango's brother contacted my agent and said he was now representing Emmango's interest which was confirmed by Emmango, He convinced us that he would match our quoted fees of one million naira(#1m=US$9000) local currency to clear the vehicles and never mind Paul who asked for 2million and that He(Paul) was a fraud as he had disappeared and that he would deliver the vehicles within 2-4 working days. My agent Mr Kayode Abiri drafted a contract and paid Mr Emmango the total sum of #500,000 local currency($4500) in 2 parts as half payment and he promised to pay the remaining #500,000 upon delivery of the vehicles. Since the money was paid, we neither saw Augustine nor heard from Emmango as both their numbers were unreachable. After costly several personal investigations for few months we found out that the consignment was in the custom's storage incurring storage fees and several futile attempts by Mr Emmango and his agents to steal the consignment. My agent Mr Abiri used his contacts to find out what was required in order to secure these vehicles legally, it costs about #3millon($15000).We paid this amount to the clearing agent on May 26th 2006 and promised the vehicles the next day. Unfortunately the next day Saturday May 27th 2006 the vehicles' possesion were taken over by Mr Emmango Anyatonwu himself and his coherts before our arrival, we managed to recover 3 vehicles namely 1994 Nissan Quest Van and 1999 Kia Sportage SUV, the 1998 Kia sportage was never recovered. Even though the two vehicles were recovered after 16 months of shippment from Texas USA, the documents of the cars are still with Mr Anyontonwu therefore rendering it useless as we can neither register them for use nor
sale in Nigeria. Dr xxxx
