Metro Nigeria's Arms Deal: NAF Fires Indicted Officers, Appoints New AOCs, PSOs



✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
The Nigerian Airforce High Command, yesterday, removed some of its officers, including Air Officers Commanding, AOCs, fingered in the $2.1billion arms scandal and appointed new officers to replace.

Vanguard gathered that about four senior officers, Air Vice Marshals, AVMs, and Commodores, are now under house arrest at Niger Barracks, Abuja, awaiting completion of interrogation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, before they would know their fate.

That is besides RA Ojuawo, an Air Vice Marshal, arrested Tuesday at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport on his way to Germany, by EFCC operatives.

It was also gathered that a former service chief, who was allowed to go home the first time he was invited, had been detained since Wednesday when he was re-invited and may be detained for up to two more weeks, following approval by the courts for his continued detention.

This development came on a day more military personnel fingered in the disbursement of the $2.1bn arms money were arrested and questioned by the Military high command, even as the Director of Military Intelligence, Brig-General Mohammed Sa’ad, was sacked over alleged connection with the arms scam.

Am so happy with this kind of development. Obviously the military are in support of the fight against corruption . I hope the Senate will come to realization that fighting for the growth of this great country does not lies in making laws only but also to obey it. Senior officers were called and indicted and immediately they were sacked ( discipline). But the Senate insisted SP won't resign haven been involved in gross misconduct and disobedience to the law yet they said he must stay.
