Group Protests Buratai’s Exclusion From Arms Probe

The Save The Nation Group has decried the exclusion of Nigeria’s Chief Of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai from the ongoing arms purchase probe.

In a press statement, the group said “The Save The Nation Movement (STNM) has questioned the rationale behind the exclusion of the Chief of Army Staff, Major General Tukur Buratai and other top army officers in the ongoing probe of the alleged involved of some military chiefs in economic and financial crimes in the management of personnel finances and the purchase of arms for the prosecution of the war against insurgency, despite that he (Buratai) was the Defence Head Quarters (DHQ) Director of Procurement between 2012 and 2015.”

Several former service chiefs including Air Marshal Alex Badeh are under investigation and the group claims that because Lt. Gen Buratai served as Director Of Procurement of the DHQ from 2012-2015 he should also be investigated.
