The ongoing trial between embattled telco-giant, MTN Nigeria and the Attorney General of the Federation over a $2 billion tax demand has been adjourned to February 7, 2019, as the presiding judge, Justice Saliu Saidu, was away on administrative leave.

MTN faces a $2 billion tax demand from Nigeria’s Attorney General, a claim the company has vehemently denied.

It was gathered that the Federal Government is yet to file a full reply to its suit, but the company had filed an injunction asking the court to restrain the government from “disturbing or otherwise interfering with the business of the company.”
