LAGOS, Nov 8 (Reuters) - A Lagos judge on Thursday adjourned a hearing in a $2 billion dispute between South African telecoms firm MTN Group and Nigeria's attorney general until Dec 3.

MTN faces a $2 billion tax demand from the country's attorney general, a claim which the company has said is without merit. The central bank has also accused the firm of illegally sending $8.1 billion abroad, which MTN has denied. (Reporting by Alexis Akwagyiram; editing by Jason Neely)
