Nigeria’s National Intelligence Agency (NIA) will be re-organised following an investigation into its activities, the country’s president announced.

The decision was prompted by the discovery in April of more than $43m (£32m) stashed in a private apartment in the commercial capital, Lagos. See the footage recorded at the time:

Details of the investigation have not been made public, but a spokesperson for President Muhammadu Buhari told the BBC that the NIA would be re-organised for “effective service delivery”.

The head of the agency has already been sacked by the president after he being linked to the hidden money.

As he received the investigation report, Mr Buhari said more people would be punished and the agency would be re-positioned.
