China Development bank is in talks to buy a stake in United Bank for Africa, located in oil-rich Nigeria, for at least five billion dollars, state media reported Monday.

‘China Development Bank hopes to have a say in the bank but it is unlikely to obtain a controlling stake,’ the Economic Observer newspaper reported, citing an unnamed source close to the bank.

The source said the two banks have yet to reach agreement on the make-up of the management after the deal, as the Chinese policy lender wanted an overhaul of the African bank according to its own standards to reduce risks in lending.

A spokeswoman of China Development Bank said she could not provide immediate comment when contacted by AFP.
