Buratai has been exonerated by the military forces over his alleged dubious ownership of properties in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Chief of Army Staff Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai
The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has cleared the air on ownership of massive Dubai properties worth $1.5 million by the Chief of Army Staff Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai after hard evidences of transaction flooded the media space on two occasions consecutively.
According to PRNigeria, the military under-cover media machinery, yesterday said the government investigated and cleared Lt.-Gen. Buratai over his assets. Although the platform was silent on whether it was the Ministry of Defence or the DHQ that cleared Gen. Buratai, it said the nature of his offshore investments was based on capital market principles of shareholding.
The Federal Government was forced to look into the wild media claims of corruption due to ferocity of the news but findings have it that Buratai was cleared of any fraudulent act in a discreet probe that involved his wives. Buratai and his wives only bought shares in some companies instead of wholly owning the property according to investigations.
Gen. Buratai has been under attack for allegedly buying two properties in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
A source, who spoke in confidence, said: “The Presidency has asked the Defence Headquarters to handle issues on some assets traced to Lt.-Gen. Buratai and his wives in the UAE.
“The DHQ will determine his fate on whether or not he has violated any law and if he has to be sanctioned or not.
“Whatever the DHQ’s findings will be forwarded to the commander-in-chief. Let the military conduct its findings in line with its rules and regulations.”
