Army Sends Seven Generals, Others For EFCC Probe

The Army last night released 12 senior officers to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for probe.

The EFCC is investigating their role in the $2.1billion arms deals.

Those found guilty of fraud by the EFCC will be tried by a Military Court Martial, The Army said.

A statement by the Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman, which did not release the names of the affected officers, said: “The Nigerian Army wishes to inform the public that 12 Army officers have been sent to the EFCC for investigation.

“These comprise three serving Major-Generals and one retired, three Brigadier-Generals, four colonels, and one Lieutenant Colonel.

“However it should be noted that at the end of the commission’s investigations, those found culpable will be tried by a Military Court Martial.”
