Nigeria seizes passport of ousted central bank boss

ABUJA--Nigeria has seized the passport of ousted central bank governor Lamido Sanusi, an ally of the outspoken government critic said Friday, a day after he was removed from office in a move that sparked fears of economic turmoil.

President Goodluck Jonathan suspended the widely respected central bank chief on Thursday over allegations of misconduct, a move many analysts saw as politically motivated.

Sanusi, who learned of his suspension while at a regional bankers meeting in Niger, flew back to Lagos and was met by officers from Nigeria's main intelligence branch, according to Nasir el Rufai, a former cabinet member and Sanusi ally.
