The Former Chief of Army Staff, COAS, Lieutenant-General Azubuike Ihejirika, (rtd.) has reacted to the rumours circulating as regards his arrest by DSS operatives.
Recall that the news of Ihejirika’s arrest by DSS operatives surfaced online a few days ago as an online news medium claimed the former Chief of Army Staff was arrested in connection with the arms purchase scandal.
According to News Agency, THISDAY, the news of Ihejirika’s apprehension by the DSS is false.
The news agency while speaking to a source close to Ihejirika gathered that he is at home and re;axing.
The close confidant to Ihejirika said: “I am really amazed at the length people are determined to go to tarnish the image of the former army chief. As I am speaking to you, the chief who just returned from his village is in his house.
“What I don’t understand is how and why they orchestrated these fables and for what purpose. I think the intention of these people is to draw the attention of the federal government to the fact that Ihejirika has not been arrested”.
The source further added: “What people don’t know is that this government would not have wasted time in arresting Ihejirika from the word go if he was guilty all this while.”
