Army chief Buratai’s claim sparks demand for probe


Senior lawyers are pushing for a probe of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai’s claim that some

officers have been hobnobbing with politicians.

The lawyers suggested yesterday that the matter should not end with Gen. Buratai merely issuing a statement and warning those involved to retrace their steps.

British High Commissioner to Nigeria Paul Arkwright, also yesterday, said: “The British Government believes that democracy is actually critical in Nigeria.”

The High Commissioner, who spoke at the sideline of an event in Abuja to present a report on corruption in Nigeria sponsored by the United Kingdom policy think-tank, Chatham House, said: “There are elections. If you’re not happy with your leaders then you should change your leadership through the democratic process and through elections.”
