Also, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spokesman Olisa Metuh is being investigated for allegedly collecting N400 million from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA). Olisa Metuh is likely to be invited for interrogation, Nation is reporting.

“The military officer was picked up in connection with the purchase of the arms because he was in charge of inventory and how each unit of the Armed Forces got its equipment. The EFCC has invited the officer to verify the arms purchase and the delivery status.

“This same officer related with many former and serving chiefs. There is no way he can be questioned without involving some of these officers in the military hierarchy. The arms scandal is messy and many ranking officers were involved. This is causing anxiety in the military because if the detained officer opens up, the probe will lead to more revelations.”


“These anxious military officers and associates have had limited contact with the top chief in detention facility. The latest dimension of the investigation shows that heads may roll in the military over these arms deals,” the newspaper quoted a source.

However the anti-graft agency may invite a former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of thePDP, Chief Tony Anenih.

“I think we are inviting Anenih and a few bigwigs implicated in the arms deals by some of the accused persons. Some of them will need to explain how they came about the cash given to them and how to effect refund,” a source said.

Meanwhile, the agency will consider money expenditure
