Nigeria's Kano state withdraws Pfizer criminal case

KANO, Nigeria, Aug 6 (Reuters) - Nigeria’s state of Kano on Thursday withdrew its criminal case against U.S. drugmaker Pfizer (PFE.N) following an out of court settlement over a 1996 meningitis drug trial.

“”I am happy I have come to the end of the matter by settling out of court. What I did is to discontinue with the case,” Aliyu Umar, the lead lawyer for the state government, told reporters after a hearing in Kano. (Reporting by Mike Oboh; Writing by Tume Ahemba; Editing by Nick Tattersall)
