‘CCB right on Bu­ratai’s as­set’

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ab­bas Ji­moh

A civil so­ci­ety group, Ad­vo­cates of So­cial Jus­tice for All (ASJA), also said yesterday that the Code of Con­duct Bureau (CBB) acted right by con­firm­ing as­sets de­clared by the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), LtGen. Tukur Bu­ratai.

The Na­tional Pres­i­dent of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, Torkuma Ve­natius, told news­men in Abuja that the timely in­ter­ven­tion of the CCB put a quick end to any dis­trac­tion that a pro­longed tus­sle may have caused Bu­ratai in his re­solve to quickly fin­ish the Boko Haram war.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the group, like other Nige­ri­ans, had called for the COAS to step down, but that there were lots of de­lib­er­ate mis­in­for­ma­tion about the prop­er­ties from the out­set.

“A lot has been un­earthed since the al­le­ga­tion against him first sur­faced. In the course of in­ves­ti­ga­tion, we found out that there was de­lib­er­ate mis­chief aimed at mis­lead­ing the pub­lic through mis­in­for­ma­tion and dis­tor­tion of facts pushed into the pub­lic space,” he said.
