FRN V P&ID Case: Ojukwu Faotu & Yusuf- (OFY-Lawyers) Celebrates With Nigeria and Mishcon De Reya.

Date:

The Law Firm of Ojukwu Faotu & Yusuf (OFY-LAWYERS) celebrates the victory of Nigeria in the P&ID case in London.

Shaistah Akhtar’s statement on the case is eloquent of the importance of the outcome. Shaistah Akhtar partner at Mishcon de Reya that led Nigeria’s legal team, expressed that “Today’s judgment is a historic result for Nigeria and its people. The Nigerian government’s resolve in pursuing a just outcome led to it uncovering overwhelming evidence of bribery and corruption. We are pleased that the Judge recognised the severity of the fraud perpetrated against the people of Nigeria in his judgment, and trust that this landmark decision will deter other potential fraudsters and their backers from exploiting the legal system in the pursuit of monetary gain.”

We are happy that on the instructions of Mishcon de Reya, our Law Firm assisted and our Partner Prof Ernest Ojukwu SAN , testified for Nigeria as the expert on Nigerian Law in the case.

We are hopeful that the Nigerian Government will take further steps to benefit from the in-depth work of Mishcon de Reya and the barristers instructed in the case beyond just the victory laps for the landmark judgment and the immediate financial savings made for Nigeria.
