ARMY OFFICERS ORDERED TO DECLARE ASSETS WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT

A statement released today by military spokesman, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, revealed that General Buratai gave the directive today during a conference with Principal Staff Officers and Directors serving at the Army Headquarters.

The Nigerian Army have been in the spotlight after an audit ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari found that numerous retired and serving military officers may have colluded in billions of dollars worth of weapons procurement deals. Mr. Buhari asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to commence investigation of the officers.  

Colonel Usman’s statement disclosed that the Chief of Army Staff had declared his own assets shortly after his “appointment as Commander, Multinational Joint Task Force in May 2015 and also on his appointment as Chief of Army Staff in July 2015.” He revealed that copies of both declarations were with the Code of Conduct Bureau.
