A Federal High Court on Monday in Lagos granted the Federal Government’s application to amend processes in its suit against Total Nigeria Plc over alleged under-declaration of crude oil exports, Premium Times reports.
The plaintiff, FG, had sued Total Nigeria Plc, alleging that it under-declared the volume of crude oil it shipped out of the country between January 2011 and December 2014. The plaintiff accused the oil company of short-changing it to the tune of $245 million by allegedly shipping several barrels of crude oil out of Nigeria without making due remittance to the Federal Government.
At the resumed hearing of the case on Monday, Charles Nwabulu announced appearance for the plaintiff, while H. Abudulkareem appeared for the defendant. Mr. Nwabulu had notified the court of a motion seeking a leave of the court to amend its pleadings.
