a BVI company whose sole shareholder is Folorunsho Coker, the former head of the number plate production authority in Lagos and currently business adviser to the governor. On his part, Coker’s lawyer said he had multiple sources of income and had always declared his interest in Satori Holdings to the Nigerian authorities.
