LONDON - BP has agreed to pay around $10bn (£8bn) to a businessman involved in a suspicious energy deal.
The energy giant bought Frank Timis' stake in a gas field off the coast of Senegal for $250 million in 2017.
But documents obtained by BBC Panorama and Africa Eye reveal that BP will also pay his company between $9bn and $12bn in royalties.
Both BP and Mr Timis deny any wrongdoing.(FA)
