MILAN, Sept 20 (Reuters) - A Milan court has sentenced two defendants to prison terms in a Nigeria corruption case related to a 2011 offshore oilfield purchase, a legal source said on Thursday.
Nigeria’s Emeka Obi and Italian Gianluca Di Nardo were each given four-year jail sentences, the source said.
The case stems from the 2011 purchase by energy companies Eni and Shell of the OPL-245 offshore oilfield in Nigeria for about $1.3 billion. (Reporting by Emilio Parodi, writing by Stephen Jewkes; editing by Jason Neely)
