CBN:  MTN Secure Deal Over $8.1bn Fund Allocation

MTN Limited is near to securing a deal with the Central Bank of Nigeria in order to repay $8.1bn.

It is supposed to have illegitimately taken out of the country, according to a person familiar with the matter.

CBN is set to meet four lenders of MTN Nigeria to discuss an argument over $8.1bn fund transfer, according to a banking source.

It was gathered that CBN sent invitations on Thursday to the Nigeria Heads of Standard Chartered, Citibank, Stanbic IBTC Bank and Diamond Bank, to attend a meeting on Friday.

The central bank and the banks failed to comment on a meeting on Friday while a spokeswoman for MTN said she did not know of any meeting.

The meeting would start at 4 pm on Friday and focus on MTN’s fund transfer.

While the office of the Attorney General of the Federation said the company failed to bring $2bn taxes back.

CBN also imposed a fine of N5.87bn on the four banks for allegedly sending dividends.
