It should be noted that the arms procurement investigation was set up to probe contracts executed during the administrations of late president Umaru Musa Yar’Adua to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan.

Nigerian Pilot reports that a former National Security Adviser is supposedly the point of the negotiation, if the members of the panel will accept their request.

The security source said that the 13 retired military chiefs are willing to return N1 trillion to the federal authorities as part of the plea bargain agreement.

The source added that the chairman of the probe panel is yet to take a decision on the proposal given to him by the affected accused generals.

Not less than 19 ex military chiefs are to be interrogated by the panel.

They are five Chiefs of Defence Staff, 14 Service Chiefs; four National Security Advisers, NSAs and eight former Ministers of Defence. The probe has caused panic among retired military chiefs who coordinated arms procurement in the last eight years.

The Buhari administration has ordered that tight security be given for members of the panel. The task is comprehensive. It will run through many governments.

The source further said: “The probe will require looking into the administrations of five Chiefs of Defence Staff, 14 Service Chiefs; four National Security Advisers and eight former ministers. It is a Herculean task.

 “Already, there is panic in the circle of retired military officers on the intent of the evaluation of arms purchase. Some of these former military chiefs have reached out to panel members to allow them have access to relevant documents.”

“All arms deals were not subjected to the nation’s procurement laws even though the late President Umaru Yar’Adua specifically said there should be no due process waiver for the military.”
