First Bank Nigeria

More shocking details have continued to emerge ever since YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine exclusively broke the story on the broke status of one time Lagos socialite and billionaire publisher of the defunct Hearts magazine, Chief Goddy Anabor.
Besides resorting to Kabukabu to now survive, we just gathered that he has no house of his own. As a matter of fact, YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine was reliably informed that he currently squats with a friend in a flat in Akowonjo, a Lagos suburb.
Anabor, before he fell on bad times, allegedly due to drugs and other family issues, was living inside Moshood Abiola Crescent, off Toyin Street, in Ikeja, Lagos. He also had other houses, including a guest house on Joel Ogunnaike Street, in Ikeja GRA. Unfortunately, all that has been sold – alongside all his exotic automobiles like a Rolls Royce and different makes of SUV.
The same fate equally befell his printing press, Gordon Press, then one of the biggest and most modern, somewhere on Olowu Street, Ikeja and his massive hotel in Benin, Edo State. From Fugar in Edo, Anabor’s failed marriage to Anthonia is believed to have contributed to the mess he is into right now. His alleged romance with hard drugs again didn’t help matters. As he’s said to have been in and out of different rehab homes. Now plying his Kabukabu business in and around Allen Avenue, very late in the night, he has a Toyota Camry car (Tiny light) which he uses for this and most times operates incognito.
YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine learnt that some of his friends who would have been of assistance got tired after trying without luck to allegedly wean him of drugs.
In his hey days, Anabor whose praise musicians like Sir Shina Peters, Oliver de Coque and so on sang to high heavens was always sighted in the company of Chris Sogunro, Wale Awesu, Tokunbo Sodunke, Shina Olowoake, Mike Oghiadhome, Omo West – all well known socialites.
“These friends of his are all doing okay. But I guess they stopped assisting – maybe o – because of what he keeps doing with his money. Sogunro, married to Vicky, ex-actress, is a big time farmer; Sodunke is doing well as a lawyer; Olowoake owns Bridgelink Hotel in Opebi; Awesu is in London or so and Omo West also has a hotel around Adebola House, West Inn”.
Back to Anabor’s current abode, our source said: “For security reasons, I won’t give you the name of the street, but it’s a 3 – bedroom flat in Akowonjo. He’s squatting with a friend who is a lawyer”. Meanwhile, monumental shock greeted YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine’s expose on Anabor. Hear what one of his dumbfounded town’s woman told us: “Yeah, we know he’s going through some challenges, but we didn’t know it was as bad as that…May the Lord come to his aid”
