The South African telecoms company MTN has offered Nigeria $1.5bn (£1bn) to settle a dispute over a failure to disconnect unregistered sim cards, Bloomberg reports.
MTN was fined $3.9bn by Nigeria’s communications authority and the company is trying to settle the issue through negotiation.
Bloomberg cites a letter letter to the government from MTN’s lawyer sent last month.
But MTN has not confirmed the offer and said in a statement that it “continues to engage with the Nigerian authorities in an attempt to ensure an amicable resolution to this matter”, Bloomberg reports.
