If you've read “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” you're not surprised by this news. Remember, Dick Cheney is so bad-ass, when he shoots people they apologize to him.
From the story:
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said yesterday it was charging former United States Vice-President Dick Cheney over the bribery scandal involving an engineering firm, KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton. Before assuming duties as the vice-president of the US, Cheney was the chief executive officer of Halliburton from 1995-2000.See that part where it says "Nigeria is making the charge" ? Nigerians are experts on what constitutes fraud. And Dick Cheney is so bad-ass he scams Nigerians!
Cheney was vice-president to President George W Bush between 2001 and 2009. Bush was succeeded by President Barack Obama.
An arrest warrant “will be issued and transmitted through Interpol”, EFCC prosecuting counsel Godwin Obla said.
The firm, KBR, had admitted bribing Nigerian government officials over the construction of a liquefied natural gas plant in Nigeria.
Spokesman of the EFCC, Femi Babafemi, said charges would be preferred against the former vice-president next week. He said the charges were “not unconnected to his role as the chief executive of Halliburton”.
