By Dipo Awojobi – The Department of State Security (DSS) has arrested the erstwhile Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lieutenant-General Azubuike Ihejirika (rtd).
The ex-army chief was reportedly picked up last night, June 21 at his residence in Maitama, Abuja.
It is not clear why Mr Ihejerika was arrested, however, it may not be unconnected with the Arms deal probe involving former national security adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki.
Recall that an Australian Negotiator, Dr Stephen Davis insisted that former governor of Borno State, Modu Sheriff and former Chief of Army Staff, General Onyeabo Azubuike Ihejirika are Boko Haram sponsors.
But Ihejirika described the allegations against him as frivolous and unfounded.
He said the allegation was meant to divert the attention of the country and its security agencies thereby causing division.
