Court case between MTN and Nigeria’s central bank postponed

A Lagos judge adjourned a hearing on Tuesday in a $10.1-billion dispute between South African telecoms firm MTN Group and Nigeria’s central bank to Dec 4.

The central bank alleges the firm illegally sent $8.1 billion abroad, and the Nigerian government has demanded $2 billion in taxes from MTN.

MTN, which makes about a third of its annual core profit in Nigeria, has said the allegations are without merit.
