NLNG offers out-of-court settlement in dispute with Adoke, NIMASA


The Nigeria LNG Ltd (NLNG) on Thursday told a Federal High Court in Lagos that it wished to settle its dispute with the Attorney-General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke (SAN), the Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) and others out of court.

Adoke had filed a Motion on Notice dated June 27 asking the court to vacate or discharge an ex-parte order, which NLNG alleged the defendants violated.

He sought to discharge it on the ground that it was made against NIMASA, who is not joined as a party to the suit.

The order was made against Adoke, Global West Vessel Specialists Nigeria Limited and its Managing Director, Mr Romeo Itima.

NLNG alleged they disobeyed an order Justice Mohammed Idris made on June 18. It filed a contempt charge against them.[WorldStage Newsonline]
