Nigeria’s Senate has begun tracking a fifty billion naira shortfall in releases made to the Nigerian Army.

The Senate Committee on Army made this known during a meeting with representatives from the Ministry of finance following a letter written to the committee by the Army.

Though the Ministry representatives deny the claims, lawmakers say there is a need to get to the root of the matter as any shortfall in funds will affect the ongoing war against terrorism.
