Controversy over Buratai’s Dubai asset ends – Osuagwu


The whistle-blower, who challenged the ownership of property in Dubai by the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, says the controversy has been put to rest.

This followed an announcement by the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB), Mr Sam Saba, on September 29 that General Buratai had been verified and cleared by the commission after a right activist, Mr Ugochukwu Osuagwu, approached the commission on the issue.

Mr Osuagwu said that besides the announcement that the Army Chief had been cleared, the Code of Conduct Bureau also gave copies of the said asset declaration form to him.

He noted that the declaration was an indication that Buratai had not violated any law, stating that he would desist from calling for a proper investigation of the Army Chief.

In early 2016, Nigerians woke up to the news that General Buratai had property in Dubai which he did not declare as a serving public officer.
