The Northern Youths Movement (NYM) has demanded immediate
investigation of the allegation of missing arms funds made by the
National Security Adviser,  (NSA), General Babagana Monguno (rtd),
against the immediate past Service Chiefs.

General Abayomi Olonisakin, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, Vice
Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas, and Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, who
recently retired as Chief of Defense Staff,  Chief of Army Staff,
Chief of Naval Staff and Chief of Air Staff respectively, were
appointed as non-career ambassadors by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The NSA had said in an interview with the BBC Hausa that “neither the
money approved by Buhari for arm purchase nor arms was met on ground
when the new service chiefs assumed office. The fact is that
preliminary investigation showed the funds are missing and the
equipment is nowhere to be found.  When the new service chiefs assumed
office, they also said they did not see anything on ground.”

In its reaction,  the NYM in a release issued in Abuja on Friday,
which was signed by its Chairman, Mallam Ishaya Jato, said with the
revelation by the NSA, it should be clear to all discerning minds that
insecurity in the country,  especially in the North has become more
like a cash-cow for top officials of the military.

The youths also said the NSA cannot be exonerated from the missing arms fund.

Nigerians will recollect that we accused the military of complicity in
the abduction of over 300 students of Government Girls
Secondary School (GGSS), Jangebe, in Talata Mafara Local Government
Area of Zamfara State. We went further to call for the removal of the
NSA, General Babagana Monguno (rtd), because it beat our imagination
how it was possible for bandits to have attacked the school, which is
located less than 100
metres to a military checkpoint and abduct over 300 schoolgirls successfully.

With the revelation coming from the NSA,  haven’t we now been
vindicated?  Isn’t it now clear enough that the reason Boko Haram
insurgency and banditry have refused to end in the north is because
top military officials are feeding fat on it?

It is therefore not enough for the NSA to just approbate and reprobate
at the same time. Nigerians want to know where the $1 billion taken
from the Excess Crude Account is.

Nigerians want to know how someone like General Buratai was able to
acquire mansions in Dubai and other places.

Most importantly,  those who made so much noise over what is now known
as Dasuki arms deal must also begin to speak up on this new Monguno
arms deal as one should not be seen as being bigger than the other.
