Abuja - The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has revealed that its records show that the $1.5m Dubai mansions, reportedly belonging to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai, was declared in his wife’s name, Nation reports.

The CCB made this known in a letter, dated July 11, signed by Ijeanuli Arinze Ofor, in response to an enquiry by Ugochukwu Osuagwu of St. Francis Xavier Solicitors and Advocates, Abuja, who had requested information on Buratai citing section 1 and 4 of the Freedom of Information Act 2011.

“We refer to your mail dated Jun 29, 2016. We wish to state here that Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai, after his appointment as the Chief of Army Staff, declared his assets as required by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” CCB wrote.

“He was served the Form CCB-I on July 21, 2015, and returned same on August 21, 2015.
