Former chief of army staff, Tukur Buratai, has reacted to the statement that some funds meant for the purchase of arms to strengthen the country’s anti-terror war went missing under his leadership and other ex-service chiefs.
The National Security Adviser to the President, Maj.-Gen Babagana Monguno (retd.) who made the allegations later denied it, stating that he was quoted out of context.
Reacting, Buratai denied embezzling funds meant for the procurement of military equipment, stating that whoever is interested in the details of the disbursement should channel such concerns to the ministry of defence.
The former army chief in a statement on Friday, through his lawyer, Osuagwu Ugochukwu, said:
My attention has been drawn to an interview granted BBC by National Security Adviser (NSA), RTD Major General Babagana Monguno, wherein he was alleged to have accused former service chiefs of filtering ARMS Fund away,” the statement reads.
“I can confirm that Lt. General Buratai and other ex-service chiefs were never mentioned in the interview and neither was any arms fund missing under the stewardship of Lt. Gen T.Y. Buratai.
Interestingly, NSA Babagana Monguno has denied making such accusations. We, therefore, urge members of the public to discountenance any such misquoted narrative suggesting sleaze on the integrity of Rtd Lt Gen T.Y. Buratai.
“Anyone interested in knowing how arms were procured by the ex-service chiefs and particularly Lt Gen T.Y. Buratai should channel such request for information to the Ministry of Defence.”
