LAGOS – NIGERIA Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, has expressed concern at South Africa’s seizure of funds reportedly meant for purchase arms to fight the raging Boko Haram terror.

He said the South Africa government was out to frustrate Nigeria’s war against the insurgents.

Spokesman of the NSA, Karounwi Adekunle, thus said Nigeria might take undisclosed “serious diplomatic action” to address the issue.

Adekunle did not specifically disclose the next line of action that Nigeria would take on the issue or if both governments had officially opened a line of communication.

He however expressed shock that while Nigeria is often” at the forefront of assisting South Africa in any available means, reserve is the case.”

“They are obviously happy with our problems of terrorism. We’ve done a lot for South Africa and we can mention them.

“Look at their companies thriving very fine in Nigeria. Government policy is favourable even though company like DSTV charges much more than other operators,” Adekunle said.

The South African authorities had three weeks ago reportedly seized about $9,3 million cash transported by two Nigerians and an Israeli purportedly for arms purchase.

South Africa had not commented on the issue but investigations were said to be ongoing.
