Highly placed military sources said the looming retirement will pave the way for the officers’ prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), which has since been investigating some of the indicted officers.

The Air Force will be toeing the line of the Nigerian Army, which announced the sacking of about 50 officers on Saturday. Some of the officers to be eased out of service, according to a source, who pleaded anonymity, include: Air Vice Marshals (AVMs) A.M. Mamu, O.T. Oguntoyinbo, T. Omenyi, J.B. Adigun, R.A. Ojuawo, and J.A. Kayode-Beckley.
