$2.1bn arms deal: EFCC detains former Chief of Air staff, Adesola Amosu

The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has arrested the immediate past Chief of Air Staff, Adesola Amosu. Operatives of the anti-graft agency arrested Amosu yesterday night at about 9pm and has kept him in their custody since then.


The former Air Force chief is among the senior military officers President Buhari recently ordered the EFCC to investigate in the ongoing $2.1 billion arms deal scandal. A source in EFCC say Amosu is being investigated for reportedly authorizing the purchase of two helicopters without functional rotors in which he later compelled two air force officers to fly in one of the helicopters after the craft was equipped with a rotor that was taken from an unserviceable Russian-made helicopter gunship.

 The air force officers died in a crash near Yola, the capital of Adamawa State because the rotors fitted on their chopper was too heavy.

The Nigeria Air Force personnel is also being investigated in a $2.1 billion arms deal scandal and another N29 billion procurement deals that took place between 2014 and 2015.

Baba is still slow abi?
He is exposing them,the judiciary is stalling..
Boko haram is being decimated...
Some refineries are working already- creating employment for engineers and casual workers..
Oil bunkerers & thieves are being dealt with..
People are afraid to steal in public offices now..
Economy is being diversified..agric and mining...for obvious reasons..

He is taking both short & long term drastic,but necessary measures to counter global oil price drop,to counter the effect of missing external reserve..
IMF praising the policies...US praising the nigga and his team..for intelligent measures so far tho they may be acutely painful,so we may grow chronically..
Yet some members of my tribe on this blog will still hate on him and call him EWU HAUSA,FULANI GOAT,ILLITERATE...well,fact is,he is more educated and exposed than most young people on this blog...He had excellent training home & abroad & speaks & constructs better grammar than most people here- just read comments here today,you will see for yourself....out of ignorance! Many dont even know why the economy seems to be tough....they dont know why these measures have been taken ,yet come here to spew ignorance...we need to study more...
