Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Retail Limited has filed a legal action before a Federal High Court in Abuja against Natural Network Petroleum and Gas Company Limited (NNPG) and two others over alleged infringement on its trademark.

The plaintiff had also in a separate suit sued Flory Mummy Nigeria Limited over the same subject matter.
