Army may arrest 25 retired officers over Buratai’s Dubai property

29 June 2016, 17:27

Abuja - The Department of State Security (DSS) may have placed some recently retired army officers on surveillance over the revelation that the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. General Tukur Buratai, owns two Dubai-based properties valued at N4.3 billion ($1.5 million), reports Herald 

The Nigerian Army had debunked rumours that the properties were acquired illegally stating that Buratai had owned the properties before he assumed office.

The retired army officers were placed on surveillance on the belief that they may be the principal sponsors of the disclosure, which is seen as a smear campaign against the military, reports Daily Independent

The army had in May sacked about 50 officers over charges bordering on corruption.

It was gathered that the revelation on Buratai’s Dubai interest might be the handiwork of some of the retired officers itching to get back at the COAS for booting them out of office.
