On Network Africa this week, the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, says out of the 67 billion dollars crude oil sales supposed to be remitted to the Federation Account, by the Nigerian national petroleum Corporation , NNPC, only 47 billion dollars has been reconciled between the NNPC and the CBN.

This leaves the NNPC with a figure different from the 10.8 billion dollars earlier quoted by the CBN, which it was reconciling. 

Crisis In Central African Republic

The Central African Republic (C.A.R.) crisis also continues, as the C.A.R soldiers have lynched a man they accused of being a rebel. He was stabbed and beaten to death, with his body burnt in the capital, Bangui. The gory incident occurred not too long after the interim President, Catherine Samba-Panza, finished speaking at an Army ceremony.

Chemical Weapons Destruction

While Syria might not have met the deadline to surrender its chemical weapons, Libya certainly has, as the Libyan Foreign Minister, Mohammed Abdulazeez, told reporters that US, Canadian and German experts have helped destroy the chemical weapons.

We bring you the Libyan report, with words from the Director-General of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Ahmet Uzumcu, who visited the weapon site.

The programme also looks at what life has been like in South Sudan since the ceasefire.

We also stop by in South-Africa to bring you updates on the Harmony Gold accident in which rescue workers have recovered 8 bodies of the miners.

We looked at the beautiful side of Africa, despite the political tension and unrest in Egypt; the people have found an unusual way of relaxing and having fun. Cock fighting it is, and it has been extremely popular in Cairo in the 1940s and 50s.

Enjoy some action from the unusual sport.
