Chief Of Army Staff Buratai Involved In $2.1billion Arms Deal by queentell(f): 10:35pm On Jan 24, 2016
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.

In a statement issued in Abuja today and signed by its National Secretary, Mazi Steven O. Chilaka, STNM said it was concerned that
only Air Force chiefs were listed among those recommended for probe by the committee established to audit the procurement of arms and
equipment in the armed forces and defence sector from 2007 to 2015.

The statement read; Major General Tukur Buratai was appointed Director of Procurement DHQ in 2012, a position he held until May 2015 that he
was appointed Force Commander of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MJTNF), an appointment he held till he became Chief of Army Staff.

As Director of Public Procurement at the DHQ, all procurements by the military between 2012 and May 2015 passed through his office. Our
question is; how can you probe procurement of arms within this period without the involvement of Major General Buratai, the man who was the
Director of Procurement?

Curiously too, only retired and serving officers of the Nigerian Air Force were said to have been indicted.

All bolded statements are lies.
Gen Buratai was only director of procurement between February 17 2014 to May 18 2014. This information is available with the Nigerian army, and on many news websites. There is also a video on youtube of Buratai's time as commandant of Nigerian Army training school.
