A political commentator and activist, Deji Adeyanju, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to arrest and sack the Nigerian Ambassador to Benin Republic, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai over the alleged billions discovered in his house.
Reports had it that the Independent Corrupt Practices (ICPC) and Other Related Offences Commission, recovered N1.85 billion from a house and office said to belong to Buratai in Abuja.
Adeyanju in a tweet on Friday, advised, Buhari to sack Buratai over the alleged discovery of billions of Naira in his house, adding that the funds are meant for the fight against insurgency.
He wrote: “Buhari should sack Buratai over the alleged discovery of billions of Naira in his house meant for the fight against insurgency and order his arrest and prosecution not out of any pretense of fighting corruption but out of shame because Dasuki was detained for many years for diverting arms funds.”
ICPC officials were said to have stormed the house in the Wuse area of Abuja, following a tip-off from a whistleblower, Daily Post reports.
The huge sum said to have been recovered is alleged to be part of the billions of naira earmarked for the purchase of arms and ammunition by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
