Apart from the army officer, the commission said it is on the trail of other military personnel who had at one time or the other drawn money from the office of the National Security Adviser and was keen on getting them to account for it.

The commission said it will not disclose the identity of the army officer yet until it is done with its investigations.

This is coming as as the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh, was arrested by the operatives of the anti-graft body in connection to the arms deal.
