The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has arrested the immediate past Chief of Air Staff, Adesola Amosu. Operatives of the anti-graft agency arrested Amosu yesterday night at about 9pm and has kept him in their custody since then.

The former Air Force chief is among the senior military officers President Buhari recently ordered the EFCC to investigate in the ongoing $2.1 billion arms deal scandal. A source in EFCC say Amosu is being investigated for reportedly authorizing the purchase of two helicopters without functional rotors in which he later compelled two air force officers to fly in one of the helicopters after the craft was equipped with a rotor that was taken from an unserviceable Russian-made helicopter gunship.

The air force officers died in a crash near Yola, the capital of Adamawa State because the rotors fitted on their chopper was too heavy.

The Nigeria Air Force personnel is also being investigated in a $2.1 billion arms deal scandal and another N29 billion procurement deals that took place between 2014 and 2015. ar2
