Sep. 21 - Nigerian legislators trade punches and insults at a hearing into a 5 million (USD) spending spree by the speaker.

The spending spree by the speaker of the House of Representatives has caused a national scandal and paralysed the House. Speaker Patricia Etteh is under investigation by a committee of fellow members over allegations that she flouted House rules by approving contracts worth 5 million (USD) to renovate her residence and that of her deputy and to buy 12 cars.
