Recall that the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, in a BBC Hausa interview, last month revealed that funds running into billions of naira meant for the procurement of arms and ammunition under the past service chiefs were unaccounted for.
Mungono said this in a speech at the third quarterly meeting of Secretaries of State Governments held on Thursday in Abuja.
The subject matter in a recent chat he had with BBC Hausa Service was quoted to have lamented the inability of Nigerian troops to contain insurgency due largely to inadequate arms and ammunition and other requisite military hardware. The BBC report had alluded that Monguno referenced misappropriated funds by former Service Chiefs.
Some critical questions emanate from Shehu’s waffle and the NSA Office’s peremptory denial. What is obvious is that they are both trying to be clever by half.
