Nigeria's anti-corruption agency is to charge former US Vice-President Dick Cheney over a bribery scandal that involves a former subsidiary of energy firm Halliburton.

The case centres on engineering firm KBR, which admitted bribing officials.

A lawyer for Mr Cheney said allegations he was involved in the scandal were "entirely baseless".

Do the Nigerians know that this man has no pulse? Do you really want to mess with a man who has no pulse? Go all over Nigeria and see if you can find even one man or woman who is alive without a pulse. But touch Cheney's wrist—nothing. Now touch the back of your hand—the hairs are standing on end. Keep your distance from this man.
