Army Detains Charles Nengite Over $16 Million Found In Wife’s Account by Islie: 2:14pm On Jan 07
Molly Kilete, Abuja


The Army has detained a Brigadier-General following the discovery of $16 million in a bank account belonging to his wife by the United States security.

The officer, Brigadier-General Charles Nengite, is currently being detained by the Special Investigations Bureau (SIB), a department in the Nigerian Army that handles matters relating to fraud and money laundering.

It was gathered that his arrest was effected after the Presidency directed both the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the army authorities to investigate the matter, upon receiving complaints from the United States government.

Daily Sun gathered that trouble started for the officer after the NFIA in the United States of America, discovered the huge amount in his wife bank account in that country.

It was gathered that upon the discovery, the wife was arrested after which the author wrote to the Presidency to furnish it with the occupation of her husband.

Upon the directives from the Presidency, the Chief Of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Tukur Butatai, ordered the SIB to take over the matter.

Sources, however said the wife was not arrested as the money was believed to have been proceeds from dirty deals while the officer was on secondment to the Niger Delta Development Company (NDDC) between 2016 and 2019.

At the time of filing this report, the officer is still being kept in custody of the SIB in Abuja.

We all know it's money money meant for the procurement of weapons to fight the Northern insurgents created by the Northern elites for political reasons, he diverted into his wife account.

I pity those young ignorant youth being recruited into the Nigerian army as sacrificial lamp, while the ogas are feeding fat on the Gorilla War.

Good one from the Americans. I hope other nations will expose more. If the wife knows the source of the money is pure, she should prove it.

This is my suggestion if it will count.

Someone up there had done the convertion maths and arrived at 5,800,000,000 in Naira.. Just collect the money, get youths that have common sense and are ready to do business... Invest in their lives with the sum of 500,000 in naira each. You will end up pulling out of poverty 11,000 youths living in poverty. Then go in search for other people who has that amount or more in their accounts and replicate. We can't have monies lying dormant. Money must be in circulation. I hate nonsense attitude.

No you can't have side business when you are serving in the military.


No voting
No freedom
No Life


You will live on order... till you are told to go (retirement)

And after retirement... you will still live on order. (Based on appointments)

However, USA is casted for money laundering... how I wish Nigerian Government can focus more on Nigerians Accounts in the Caribbean. This is the new route for money laundering.
