OIL WAR: Nigeria To Spend $10bn To End Insurgency By Militants

Nigeria will invest $10bn (£8bn) in its oil-rich south to end an insurgency by militants, the oil minister has said.

"Our target is to ensure zero militancy in the area," Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu said. The money would be used to build infrastructure, including roads and railways,Mr Kachikwu said. 

Militant attacks have severely disrupted oil production and the groups have been demanding that the government spends more of its oil wealth on tackling widespread poverty in the Niger Delta region.
