By John Imade (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The National Security Adviser, Major-General Babagana Monguno, Rtd, says President Muhammadu Buhari will probe the whereabouts of funds released for the purchase of arms for the country’s military.
Monguno stated this during an interview session on BBC Hausa on Friday.
The NSA had lamented that the new service chiefs said they had not seen some of the arms and equipment expected to be in the military’s stockpile.
“As long as there is no proper investigation, I will not say anything, but the money is gone, the goods are not seen, and the new security chiefs say they have not seen it,” he said.
“Some may be on their way from the United States, England or elsewhere, but now I don’t see them on the ground.”
President Buhari had ordered the newly appointed security chiefs to restore peace to the troubled sections of the country within few weeks, following the escalating state of insecurity that has seen a rise in the activities of insurgents, bandits and other armed groups in the North-East, North-West and ethnic tensions in the South.
