The legal saga surrounding the Nigerian government’s battle against the Irish company P&ID has finally ended with a landmark judgment in Nigeria’s favour. Nigeria’s claims centered around allegations of corruption and misconduct by Mr Shasore SAN, the lead counsel for Nigeria in the P&ID arbitration.
The accusations suggested that Mr Shasore had colluded with P&ID, allowing false evidence to go unchallenged and thereby hindering Nigeria from presenting a robust defence. However, the court’s judgment, delivered by Hon. Justice Robin Knowles, CBE, indicates no evidence of corruption against Mr. Shasore, citing several instances where his actions were consistent with Nigeria’s best interests.

Nigeria’s accusations against its legal team, emerging from a detailed court proceeding, have cast a cloud of suspicion over the integrity of specific key legal figures involved in the case. The allegations extended to other legal figures, including Mr. Dikko, Ms. Belgore, Ms. Adelore, and Mr. Oguine.
Nigeria alleged that these individuals were also involved in corrupt practices, pointing to unexplained financial transactions and suspicious payments. However, the evidence presented during the trial was deemed insufficient to substantiate claims that they were bribed by P&ID.
The controversy has further deepened with the revelation that Nigeria’s internal legal documents had been obtained by P&ID, raising serious concerns about the security of sensitive information and the integrity of the legal process.
The case has raised questions about the actions and integrity of the official representatives involved, prompting calls for a thorough investigation into their roles.
