A serving Major General during interrogation with the presidential 13-man panel in connection to the arms and other military equipment scandal between 2007 and 2015 broke down in tears as overwhelming facts emerged against him.

According to New Telegraph, the two-star general, who once held a powerful position at one of the formations under the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) wept shortly after he was confronted with hard and overwhelming evidence of alleged corrupt practices in the procurement of military hardware.

The Army General was among the 17 serving and retired military officers indicted in the first interim report of the audit panel over the procurement of arms and other equipment for the Nigeria Air Force (NAF).
