Nigeria orders probe into ‘missing $20bn’ of oil money
President Jonathan says the allegations are patently false
Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan has ordered a forensic audit of the state oil firm following claims that $20bn (£12bn) had gone missing.
Suspended central bank governor Lamido Sanusi caused shockwaves last month when he said that $20bn in oil revenue had not been accounted for.
Mr Jonathan’s office denied the claim and said “reputable international firms” would carry out the audit.
