The federal government has withdrawn its lawsuit against Seplat Energy Plc Chief Executive Officer, Roger Brown.
Recall that the FG had filed charges against Seplat Energy Plc and its CEO for an alleged breach of the Immigration Act, 2015 last week.
In a corporate notice to the Nigerian Exchange Limited on Thursday, Seplat stated that it had become aware of the notice of discontinuance of the legal action.
The Notice of Withdrawal/Discontinuance of the action was issued by the Director Legal Services of the Nigeria Immigration Service and stated in part that “the Claimant hereby discontinues all the proceedings in this charge against the above-named Defendants.”
Seplat said that it will “continue to engage with the Ministry of Interior to bring closure to the false allegations presented to the Ministry as a result of which the residency status of its Chief Executive Officer was withdrawn.”
