An arrest warrant is soon to be issued for former Vice President Dick Cheney, according to Godwin Obla, prosecuting counsel at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, located in Abuja, Nigeria.

 The warrant, according to Obla, is for allegedly being part of an bribery scandal involving Halliburton Co and five other foreign companies totaling over $180 million in an effort to secure a $6 billion liquefied natural-gas contract in the 1990s.

Cheney was CEO of Halliburton and its former engineering and construction unit KBR Inc., from 1995 to 2000, when he left to be the Vice Presidential running mate of George Bush. read more and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
