Nigeria’s Senate seeks explanation of $462 mln to buy helicopters

Nigeria’s upper chamber of parliament on Tuesday said it would invite the central bank governor and the ministers of finance and defence to explain the release of $462 million to buy helicopters, a lawmaker said.

According to Reuters, Senator Sam Anyanwu said the money was withdrawn from the federal account in March without the approval of lawmakers.

“Senate resolves to invite the CBN Governor and Ministers of Finance and Defense to shed more light on the release of the funds,” the Senate said in a tweet.
