COURT ADJOURNS FG’S SUIT AGAINST OIL COMPANIES TO APRIL 30

The Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday adjourned to April 30th the 69 million dollars suit filed by the Federal Government against Chevron Petroleum Nigeria Ltd to recover Oil Revenue.

The FG filed the suit against Chevron Nigeria Ltd, and Chevron Petroleum Nigeria Ltd, as first and second defendants respectively.

A similar suit against Total E&P Nigeria Plc which was pending at the Court of Appeal was equally adjourned by the court.

The suit was filed by FG, through its Counsel, Prof Fabian Ajogwu, (SAN) in 2016, against some International Oil Companies to recover lost revenues arising from undeclared and under-declared crude oil shipments from Nigeria to different parts of the world.
