Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that legal documents were being prepared by the federal government to enable it to confiscate assets of P&ID in Nigeria.

The development was made public by the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed when he appeared with agencies under his ministry’s supervision to defend 2020 budget before the Senate committee on the information.

He said: “I am aware that the AGF is also working on registering the judgment in which the Nigerian court ordered the winding up of P&ID Nigeria.

“The important thing about it is that when this judgment is registered, it, therefore, means that whatever belongs to P&ID now becomes the property of Nigeria.

“I am also aware that we are also working on instituting an action to set aside the entire award of $9.6bn on the grounds that the award did not take into cognizance, the fraud involved in the entire process.”
