By Agencies

The head of one of Angola’s largest banks has resigned after being named in a corruption probe centred around ex-first daughter Isabel dos Santos, according to a letter seen by AFP on Thursday.

Mario Leite da Silva, who was chairperson of Banco de Fomento Angola (BFA), the third largest bank in the country, made his announcement in the letter dated January 20, a day after his name appeared in a trove of leaked documents alleging illicit enrichment by the billionaire daughter of former president Jose Eduardo dos Santos.
