The Chief of Army Staff Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai, has constituted a panel to investigate his predecessors over billions of dollars that were spent on the purchase of arms and logistics during their tenure.
Buratai recently took over the mantle of Army leadership from Lt-Gen. Kenneth Minimah.
It is believed that the Army chief decided to set up the probe panel after carrying out a preliminary inventory of army weaponry required to wage war against Boko Haram.
During the course of the inventory, it was discovered that what was available was significantly lesser than what should have been in stock.
Vanguard reports that this discovery led to the formation of the eight-man panel headed by a Brigadier General, with four Colonels and three Lieutenant Colonels as members.
The panel is expected to investigate all armament equipment, including armoured tanks, artillery weaponry and other logistics bought by the Nigerian Army from 2010 to 2015.
