London High Court on Friday that Nigeria’s $1 billion suit against oil giants Shell and Eni over the controversial Malabu deal cannot go ahead in England.

According to Law360.com, High Court Judge Christopher Butcher said the court does not have jurisdiction to hear the claim.

In his written decision, the judge said that the English case has both the same essential facts and parties as parallel proceedings in Italy both brought by the Nigerian government over the Malabu deal.
