Nigerian Corporate Giants Cross Paths Again in Mining Dispute

Dangote Group and BUA Group have resumed their tussle over the ownership of the mining sites in Obu, Okpella in Edo State, with both companies stating their positions in separate statements. Bua Group said that a recent judgement by the Federal High Court in Benin City restrained Dangote Industries and the police from interfering with its operations at the Okpella mining sites in Okpella, Edo State, while the Dangote Group, in its statement, said that BUA group did not own the mine and advised regulatory agencies to "disregard completely the unfounded and mischievous claim and publication by BUA Group," saying "it was riddled with misrepresentations and deliberate distortions of facts."
