Buhari ‘not demanding’ Cameron apology

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari says he is not demanding “any apology from anybody” after UK Prime Minister David Cameron labelled his country “fantastically corrupt”.

Speaking at an anti-corruption event in London, Mr Buhari said he was more interested in the return of stolen assets held in British banks.

Mr Cameron made the unguarded comments in a conversation with the Queen.

He is hosting an international anti-corruption summit on Thursday.

In his speech, Mr Buhari described corruption as a “hydra-headed monster” which threatens the security of countries.

He said corruption in Nigeria was endemic and his government was committed to fighting it.
