Buratai: “Seized  Property in Abuja is not mine”

The property seized by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offenses Commission in the Wuse 2 neighborhood of Abuja, according to the former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, is not his.

Through his legal counsel, Ugochukwu Osuagwu, Buratai spoke at a news conference and referred to claims that the property was connected to him as untrue.

He stated:

“We have read the above false publication, and after consulting with LT Gen. T.Y. Buratai (RTD), we can guarantee that it is full of deceit, false, and fabrication.

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.
