A staggering revelation has detailed how a Nigeria military officer raked in billions of naira earmarked for the military assignments in the country to finance personal projects such as hotels, schools etc.
According to a right group, Citizens United for Peace and Stability (CUPS), the military officer, Mr Bukar Abubabkar, a group captain in the Nigeria Airforce stole billions of public funds to build hotels in Nigeria and South Africa.
Below is the statement signed by the Director of CUPS, Dr Idris Ahmed:
Fellow compatriots, without a shadow of a doubt, corruption in the military hierarchy is the worst form of corruption in Nigeria. It threatens the very corporate existence of the Nigerian state. This is why we at CUPS are determined, with the help of patriotic Nigerians, to bring corruption in the military to the barest minimum.
The recent resurgence of the Boko Haram insurgency has everything to do with corruption in our military. Our gallant soldiers at the war front are criminally sent to their early graves by the callous and treacherous generals, while our civilians are also needlessly dying in the hands of the terrorists. We are a nation of over 200 million industrious people. Unfortunately, we are being taken for a ride by a gang of criminal traitors, who number no more than few thousands at best. This absurd situation must immediately stop!
From this point onwards, we at CUPS will be releasing to the public domain, all the investigations that we have carried out on corrupt military officers, from the generals at the top, to the last man in the pecking order!
Today, 25/8/2018, we are releasing the file of one Mr. Bukar Abubakar. He is a Group Captain serving in the Nigerian Air force. His last known post is the Chief Logistics Officer, Operation Lafia Dole, based in Maiduguri. His previous positions include Cashier at Defence Headquarters (2009 – 2012), and a military attaché to Nigerian High Commission, London, UK (2014 – 2015).
This corrupt Group Captain stole billions of public funds and built hotels in Nigeria and South Africa. He also built mansions in Kaduna and Abuja. Find attached is the 30 pages report, which has since been sent to the EFCC. Please share this report, so that it goes viral.
May God save Nigeria and Nigerians. Amen.
