Nigerians who invested in defunct Dantata Success and Profitability Company, Kano are being prepped for compensation by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Accordingly, SEC said there will be a verification exercise for the investors between May 31st and Sunday June 2 from 9am to 4pm daily, to ascertain the level of their commitment to the company.
It said: “The Commission wishes to inform and reassure investors in Dantata Success and Profitable Company that it is finalizing plans for the repayment of investors’ funds (from assets so far being recovered from the company).
“The investors are required to go along with the following documents: original receipt evidencing their payment or bank teller for deposit into the company’s account; valid means of identification (voters card, National Driving License, National Identity Card, international Passport etc) and investors bank account details”, SEC said in a statement.
SEC, in pursuant to its powers under section 13(w) of the Investments and Securities Act 2007, on 6th February 2019 sealed up the business premises of Dantata Success and Profitable Company (DSPC).
