Cash withdrawal limits stand, says Sanusi

Lead Image

The governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has turned down the request of senators to increase the threshold of free cash withdrawal to be enforced by CBN's latest cash withdrawal policy.
Mr Sanusi, in company of his deputies, could not wait to leave the Senate Hearing Room 1 venue of the Thursday meeting with members of the senate committee on Banking, Insurance and other financial institutions before he declined the senators' request to slack the policy.

"For now, let us leave it at that," he told the senators shortly after they made their views known on the policy.
Mr Sanusi explained that although the variables in the policy are not cast in stone, it is an ambitious target the organisation hopes to achieve. The senators were worried the new policy would scare bank customers and in the long run make doing business in Nigeria more expensive.

Bin Laden dead

Blood on the floor of one of the rooms at Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan
OSAMA BIN LADEN was unarmed when commandos burst into his room and shot him dead, the White House has revealed, raising questions about whether the US ever planned to capture the terrorist leader alive.
The Obama administration, meanwhile, was still debating whether to release gruesome images of bin Laden's corpse, balancing efforts to demonstrate to the world that he was dead against the risk that the images could provoke further anti-US sentiment.

Osama bin Laden killed in Pakistan, Obama says


Osama bin Laden, the Saudi extremist whose al-Qaida terrorist organization killed more than 3,000 people in coordinated attacks on the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001, is dead following a military operation in Pakistan and the U.S. has recovered his body, U.S. President Barack Obama announced Sunday night. "Justice has been done," the president declared as crowds formed outside the White House to celebrate, singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "We Are the Champions," NBC News reported.

Obama said bin Laden, 54, whom he called a terrorist "responsible for the murder of thousands of American men, women and children," was killed in Pakistan earlier in the day after a firefight at a compound in the city of Abbottabad in a military operation that was based on U.S. intelligence.
Other U.S. officials said one of bin Laden's sons and two of his most trusted couriers also were killed, as was an unidentified woman who was used as a human shield.
The news immediately raised concerns that reprisal attacks from al-Qaida and other Islamist extremist groups could follow soon.
