Segun Osuntokun acted for the Central Bank of Nigeria in its successful defence of a claim valued at over Elbn against it brought by a Nigerian citizen in the High Court in England. The claimant alleged that he was the victim of a “sting” operation by the Nigerian state security services and the Central Bank, which caused him financial loss. Following an appeal by the CBN, the Supreme Court of England and Wales, in a landmark judgment, disallowed part of the claimant’s case and thereby clarified the law surrounding civil fraud claims made against alleged accessories.
