ABUJA, Sept 27 (Reuters) – Lawmakers in the upper house of Nigeria’s parliament on Tuesday said they would investigate an allegation that South Africa’s MTN, Africa’s biggest telecoms company, illegally transferred $13.92 billion out of the West African country.
It followed the passing of a motion by a parliamentarian in the Senate. MTN declined to comment on the allegation. (Additional reporting by TJ Strydom, in Johannesburg; Writing by Alexis Akwagyiram)
