One year later; South Africa to return seized $9.34 million

Iyene Etim

The South Africa government has said it will return seized $9.34 million (R129.5 million) arms deal to Nigeria on November 30 after a year-long disagreement.

Recall that the South African customs officials and police stopped a man who flew into Lanseria Airport from Nigeria carrying bags stuffed with $9.34 million cash allegedly for “humanitarian” arms deal.

Sahara Reporters says the handover would hold on November 30. This comes two weeks after the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) agreed to hand over the cash to the defence adviser at the Nigerian High Commission in Pretoria.

NPA spokesman, Luvuyo Mfaku, said, “There is no criminal prosecution arising from this matter”
