Two British nationals, identified as James Richard Nolan and Adam Quinn will be remanded in prison, in connection with money laundering charges.

Those charges were brought by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, in and are related to the 9.6 billion dollar arbitral award to P and ID Limited by a UK court.

The two were docked on a 16 count- charge, to which they pleaded ‘not guilty’.

Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja, struck out count nine of the charges on the grounds that “a court of law has no jurisdiction to entertain a charge against a non-registered person”.

Trial will start November 20.
