Speaking at a press briefing, through his legal adviser, Ugochukwu Osuagwu, Buratai described reports that linked the property to him as a factless one.

A former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai has insisted that properties, hard currencies and cars seized from an alleged military contractor do not belong to him.

The items were seized by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission in Wuse 2 area of Abuja.

Speaking at a press briefing, through his legal adviser, Ugochukwu Osuagwu, Buratai described reports that linked the property to him as a factless one.

He said; 

“We have read through the said factless publication and we have sought the views of LT Gen. T.Y. Buratai (RTD) and we can confirm that the said publication is filled with mischief, baseless and concocted.

 

“Lt. Gen.T.Y. Buratai has no relationship with the said properties nor does he have any relationship with the said K Salam Construction Company Nigeria Limited. These are fabricated lies to criminally defame the image of LT Gen.T.Y. Buratai.

 

“First, ICPC in a Press Release on June 24 2022 denied any involvement of LT. Gen.T.Y. Buratai with their investigation of the Wuse 2 Property.

 

“Secondly, Corporate Affairs Commission in a letter dated Monday, 27 June 2022 and signed by A.G. Abubakar clearly exonerated LT Gen.T.Y. Buratai with any relationship with the said K Salam Construction Company Nigeria Limited.

 

“Messrs. Muhammed Ahmed Sallau and Sallau Kabiru are the owners of the said company.

 

“Thirdly, a check on the FRSC website on the number plate: ABJ98BH attached to the Mercedez Benz is false. Checks show that the said Plate number belongs to a Toyota Corolla custom colour.

 

“We, therefore, use this medium to urge restraint on those who are trying to politicize what is purely a matter being investigated.

 

“With ICPC having cleared the air on this subject matter it will be preposterous to now try to politicize the matter.”

  

The former COAS is also expected to take action against those behind the report.
