Toke Makinwa, a Nigerian media personality, has taken center stage on social media after some yet-to-be-verified reports claimed that she lost her home in the Banana Island area of Lagos.
On July 2, the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) had seized assets belonging to Festus Fadeyi and Pan Ocean Group. The corporation said they were holding on to debt of over N240 billion.
There was, however, rumour on Monday that Makinwa’s luxury apartment in Banana Island was seized and that the property — said to have been listed among Fadeyi’s assets — was gifted to her.
As of when this report was filed, the vlogger is yet to comment on the rumour.
Last month, the OAP had announced that she bought her dream house, at the age of 35.
Some Nigerians have since taken to social media platforms, especially Twitter, to register their different opinions on the alleged seizure of Makinwa’s home.
“Which of your daddies bought house for Toke Makinwa on credit and now AMCON has repossessed the house?,” Olusegun asked.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:

So it’s Festus Fadeyi! Interesting. I remember his children called out Toke Makinwa few years ago to leave their father alone. That the man was spending a lot of money on her while being heavily indebted to Skye Bank. Kai. Men are Scum.— Sola (@Advsola) July 27, 2020

She was never owner of the property even if he made her feel so. More so, she's not smart and must be greedy. She ought to have hired a Solicitor to carry out due diligence on the property and to ensure ownership is properly transferred to her.— Chinedu Adikwu_esq (@ChineduAdikwu) July 27, 2020

If you actually believed Toke Makinwa bought a house in Banana Island, the joke really is on you. Do you know how much houses there cost? What business did she do to be able to afford it? When you ask these questions, you're termed a hater. No wahala— ChrisBest Oguguo (@chrisboguguo) July 27, 2020
