Speaking on Arise TV on Thursday, Adeleye said Puma have been “sending documents from their legal department” adding that the company “will go to court.”

“We are sure that PUMA will go to court on this matter. Their officials have called that they are sending documents from their legal department. We wrote the minister on the implications for Nigeria. This won’t make other companies deal with Nigeria.”
