Tillerson to Spend Few Hours in Nigeria
Tillerson arrived in Nairobi on Friday as part of a five-nation tour of Africa that includes Ethiopia, Chad, Nigeria and Djibouti. His meeting with the president was announced by Buhari's Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad on Twitter.

"We have written to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons", the spokesman told reporters.

"They want to simultaneously deny it and yet at the same time to glory in it". He said Russia's recent provocations need a tough response, including action against Russian oligarchs with questionable ties who have used London as a safe haven. He also cast doubt on the possibility that the nerve agent was sent through the mail or was placed in luggage that Skripal's daughter brought with her from Russian Federation to Britain.

"We will go after the money and actually we are going after the money", he said, adding that the National Crime Agency and Economic Crimes Unit were investigating a wide range of individuals.

France, which on Wednesday had said it wanted proof of Russian involvement before deciding whether to take action against Moscow, appeared to change its position on Thursday, saying it agreed with the assessment of its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally Britain.
