Jabi Lake Mall board has denied authorizing Naira Marley concert, as they expressed shock and disappointment over the development.
According to a report by THISDAY, the board condemned the illegal action in the strongest terms, clarifying that the event took against express instructions given to the property manager.
According to a source close to the shareholders;
“Jabi Lake Mall was built in 2015 with the vision of creating a beautiful lakeside property that allowed the residents of Abuja to shop, relax, network and have fun. The mall was also designed to invigorate the local economy and provide a safe and comfortable location for retailers to sell their goods.
“As is typical for large properties like this, the shareholders selected a property manager who was paid to manage the property – Broll Property Services. Broll is one of Africa’s leading commercial property services company with operations in Angola, Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Swaziland, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia. They are well known in the industry and we selected them on the basis of their stellar reputation.”
The source further disclosed that shareholders were shocked to learn that a middle-level employee of Broll Management Company, for unknown reasons ignored express directives and the laws and regulations of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
This employee, it was learnt, took the illegal decision to host the event on the property without informing their superiors at Broll, and the shareholders only found out about this concert after the fact via social media.
THISDAY further confirmed that the shareholders have moved swiftly and called an emergency meeting on Sunday and summoned the management company for a meeting on Monday.
