Arms Procurement: EFCC confronts Badeh with details of expenditure


By Soni Daniel,

Northern Region Editor Immediate past Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, spent most part of yesterday with operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in Abuja, telling all that he knew about arms purchase during this tenure as Chief of Air Staff and later as the CDS. He was summoned to appear before a special team of interrogators raised by the EFCC to look into the report of the Presidential Committee on Arms Purchase between 2007 and 2015. The panel, which was raised by President Muhammadu Buhari in the twilight of his inauguration, turned in its report early this year, naming many top military officers, including Badeh as those to give explanations on what transpired during their tenure. Vanguard learnt from competent sources that Badeh, who arrived the EFCC headquarters in Abuja early  yesterday, was still with the operatives of the agency at the time of filing the report last night.
