Ex-Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, has been linked with the ongoing probe of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).
Air Chief Marshal Badeh was moved to Lagos last week as part of the investigation of NIMASA.
The EFCC is believed to be tidying up some loose ends in its investigation of military officers suspected to have been involved in the $2.1b controversial arms deals.
The anti-graft agency revealed that Badeh was moved to Lagos in connection with the ongoing probe of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency(NIMASA) during the tenure of the former Director- General, Dr. Patrick Ziadeke Akpobolokemi.
He will be detained pending the outcome of the investigation of the probe according to EFCC.
Badeh is also to be interrogated around the award of contracts beyond authorised thresholds, absence of contract agreements, the non-specification of procurement costs, transfer of public funds for unidentified purposes and general non-adherence with provisions of the Public Procurement Act.
