Missing IAAF Grant Is Nigeria's Latest Show of Shame

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is set to launch an investigation into the 'disappearance' of U.S.$135,000 that the International Association of Athletics Federations mistakenly granted to the Athletics Federation of Nigeria. An error was made in the payment of U.S.$150,000 instead of U.S.$15,000 and the association is now demanding the return of the balance or Nigeria may face sanctions.
