Nigeria: Reps Panel Indicts Osinbajo, Calls for Sack of NEMA Boss

The House of Representatives Committee on Emergency and Disaster Preparedness has indicted Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, accusing him of illegally approving N5.8 billion North East Intervention Fund which the lawmakers said was mismanaged by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).
