Nigeria’s former Federal Capital Territory Minister, Malam Nasir El-Rufai has engaged the service of an International legal expert Robert Amsterdam of Amsterdam & Peroff, to defend him against charges of corruption and abuse of office while in government.
A statement published on PRNewswire / says that Robert Amsterdam has a broad mandate to mount a vigorous legal defense of El-Rufai’s reputation, person and property both in Nigeria and abroad.
Robert Amsterdam is the founding partner of the Toronto- and London, U.K.-based law firm Amsterdam & Peroff.
Mr. A. U. Mustapha, a Nigerian counsel for El-Rufai, stated that, “the increasingly libelous accusations against former Minister El-Rufai and the ferocity of the campaign against him which violate Nigeria’s commitments under international law prompted us to look for jurisdictions outside of Nigeria for additional arena for redress.”
