There are reports that President Muhammadu Buhari may sack his Interior minister, Lt. Gen. Abdurahman Danbazau, over his alleged indictment in the Defence Procurement Report submitted to the President.
President Buhari is reportedly unhappy with the security information he has received so far on the report.
Nigerian Pilot reports that the committee, which was set up by Buhari to investigate the procurement of arms from 2007 to 2015, reportedly revealed that several top army officers are indicted in the report.
It was further disclosed that among the top officers indicted, there were attempts to doctor the report, but the investigation committee resisted.
It is alleged that Dambazau was particularly trying to suppress the content of the report.
Dabazau was former Chief of Army Staff during the administration of late President Umaru Yar’Adua, and served between 2008 and 2010.
Others allegedly indicted in the report include the immediate past Chief of Army Staff, Kenneth Minimah, and his predecessor, Azubuike Ihejirika.
