The National Security Adviser, NSA Babagana Monguno, has revealed that funds given to former service chiefs for arms purchase not be traced.

On January 26, President Muhammadu Buhari removed the service chiefs in persons of the Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin; Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok Ekwe Ibas; and Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar.

The president had immediately appointed their replacements in persons of Major-General Leo Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff; Major-General I. Attahiru, Chief of Army Staff; Rear Admiral A. Z. Gambo, Chief of Naval Staff; and Air-Vice Marshal I.O Amao, Chief of Air Staff.

But in an interview with the BBC Hausa on Friday morning, the NSA said neither the money approved by Mr Buhari for arm purchase nor arms was met on ground when the new service chiefs assumed office.

Asked why the government is foot-dragging on fight against banditry, Mr Monguno said the president had done his best by approving huge amount of money for arm purchase but the equipment was not forthcoming.


“Now that he (President Buhari) has brought new people (service chiefs), hopely they will device some ways… I’m not saying the former service chiefs diverted the money, but the money is missing. We don’t know how, and nobody knows for now,” he said.

Asked whether the matter is investigated to trace the funds or the military hardwares, the NSA said the president would investigate the matter.

“The President will surely probe this matter. As we speak, the Nigerian Governors’ Forum too is also wondering where all the money went. I can assure you the president takes issues of this nature seriously.

“The fact is that preliminary investigation showed the funds are missing and the equipment is nowhere to be found.

“When the new service chiefs assumed office, they also said they did see anything on ground,” said the NSA.

I wish this country can disappear and reappear back in time on another continent, maybe amongst the dinosaurs...

Don’t tell us go and arrest him...

These Fulani people are deceitful murderers. If you watch the charade they just concocted with the help of channels TV you will realize that there is nobody in charge of this country

In my analysis of what they hurriedly put together to seems like national security emergency meeting, i noticed that the northern emirs went to report to Buhari that their people are being attacked and their house set ablaze with their herds and it’s making life difficult for them. They seek Buharis approval to unleash the army on Southerners to protect their people.

We have to be prepared for military invasion in the South because they are coming to protect the interests of criminal marauders who are killing our people.

We can not achieve security with deceit and lies.

Somebody somewhere will only be shocked by this report and that's all.

Instead of them to find lasting solutions to unbearable rate of crimes and insecurities we are currently experiencing, na so so worry about Cows and their Snakes nurturing ventures they are so much concern about.

Buhari is mentally slow and it's a shame for any educated person to still be supporting this m.or.on of a president.

Looting has seriously been ongoing without Buhari either noticing or caring to notice.

Shame and joke is on you who still support Buhari.

Just read diz nonsense in 2021 ?..this country is a joke

And the useless man is saying I didn't say they diverted the money o but we can't trace the money or arms

Where are the useless BMC always talking about 16 years ago

What will one say to this ? Money approved for arms gone no arms bought

Simplyleo come here and talk rubbish and blame your enemies for this ..

And the useless government rewarded them with promotions

This country is useless now I see it .

Corruption is only cried about when it's the opposition and people from another tribe but when it's one's own party members and tribesmen no one talks

How can we then grow as a nation? Tell me why we should remain one nation with this sort of corrupt system backed by tribalism?

If this where to be services chiefs from south south or south east the DSS and EFCC would have descended on them frozen their accounts taken their passports !! And we blame the iboz who want out of this nonsense of a nation?

Diz country is just useless
