Group accuses CCB of compromise over Buratai’s Dubai property

12 July 2016, 14:29

Lagos - The  Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders (CACOL) has accused the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) of covering up the Chief Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, in the Dubai property scandal, reports Sahara Reporters.

The group in a statement on Monday failure of the CCB to verify the value of  Buratai's assets and to juxtapose it with his verifiable legitimate earnings is questionable.

The statement was signed by the group's Executive Chairman, Debo Adeniran.

Adeniran described as suspicious the failure of the CCB to verify the value of the assets and called on the agency to explain the lapse or be viewed as having abetted Buratai if the allegations of corruption against the him are proved to be true.

The COAS had admitted that he owns two choice properties in Dubai, but insisted he purchased the assets with his personal savings and not with illicit funds as been reported .

He also claimed to have declared the properties twice in his assets declaration documents, in which the CCB corroborated.

Adeniran is, however, not convinced that COAS legally acquired the properties.

He called on the Economic Financial Crimes commission (EFCC) to investigate Buratai.

He said he is still surprised how an Army General managed to save $1.5m to buy properties in Dubai.
