“LAGOS — Nigeria's anti-corruption police said on Thursday they planned to file charges against former Vice President Dick Cheney in a $180 million bribery case involving a former unit of oil services firm Halliburton.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday summoned the country chief of Halliburton and last week detained 10 Nigerian and expatriate Halliburton staff for questioning after raiding its Lagos office.
"We are filing charges against Cheney," EFCC spokesman Femi Babafemi told Reuters, but declined to give any further details on what the charges were, or where they would be filed.”
Presidential elections in Nigeria are well underway. Apparently, in the election, both candidates are doing their best to have the other arrested or implicated in some crime. Just like Nigeria, corrupt Liberty County prosecutors use the indictment process to eliminate or gain an advantage over their political adversaries. Fortunately for Liberty County citizens, corrupt officials and their actions will soon be revealed.
Dick Cheney is guilty of nothing more that being a successful business person and tough on enemies of the USA. The companies Cheney is affiliated with such as Halliburton have contributed greatly to the Houston, Texas and world economies.
The only thing Nigeria is known for is the millions of dollars they have defrauded and scammed from Americans.
This charge by the Nigerians is nothing more than a way to shake down Hallburton and/or Mr. Cheney for money and to damage Obama's political enemies- Conservatives/Republicans.
