Nigeria's Former Security Chief Accused Of Stealing $2bn From Boko Haram Fight

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the arrest of his predecessor's security adviser who allegedly stole more than $2bn ($1.31).
Sambo Dasuki is accused of awarding phantom contacts to buy 12 helicopters, four fighter jets and ammunition. He strongly denies the allegations.

The equipment was meant to fight militant Islamist group Boko Haram.
Soldiers have complained that despite the military's huge budget, they were ill equipped to fight.

A spokesman for Mr Buhari said the corruption resulted in the needless deaths of thousands of Nigerians.
