Silverbird Group on Friday announced the reopening of its cinemas as well as its radio and television arms, which were affected by the abrupt closure of Silverbird Galleria in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt on Thursday.
The magnificent complexes were shut by armed policemen and officials of the Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria over an alleged N11 billion debt owed by the group.
The closure of the galleries generated mixed reactions across the nation as thee were insinuations that it was a witch-hunt over political differences between the Buhari government and the group’s President, Senator Ben Murray Bruce.
The statement reads: “The Management of Silverbird Group is pleased to announce the commencement of full operations at Silverbird Cinemas (Victoria -Island) and Port-Harcourt.
We apologize for the disruption caused and are assuring our patrons and clientele of our commitment to providing quality service.
“We are also pleased to announce that STV Lagos and Rhythm 93.7 are also operational at the Galleria. Management is working round the clock to ensure that other locations are operational as soon as possible.
“We thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.”
