The lenders of Nigerian wireless operator 9mobile, which was known as Etisalat Nigeria until July this year, have selected Barclays to find new investors for the indebted cellco. Reuters cites two banking sources as saying that Barclays is in the process of setting up a database for prospective investors to conduct due diligence on 9mobile, which had just over 18 million subscribers at the end of June 2017.
