Gen. Buhari To Probe Service Chiefs.

A top military source said at the weekend that the incoming administration of Major General Muhammadu Buhari, was planning to institute a comprehensive probe during which some service chiefs, past and present, would be summoned to defend their tenure, especially how defence budget was spent under their watch. This emerged as the military have arrested suspected supplier of food and fuel to Boko Haram as well as rescuing 260 women and children in Chalawa, Adamawa State.
Also, some group of women and children earlier rescued from Sambisa Forest narrated their ordeal yesterday in the hands of Boko Haram. The source said the incoming administration was considering setting up a truth and reconciliation committee on the six-year old terror war which erupted in 2009.
It was also gathered that some former service chiefs and military commanders that held strategic operational and command positions, might appear or be asked to appear before the panel, whenever it is constituted, to give account of what they did and knew about the fight against insurgency. The source said the move might not be in bad faith, but to put the records straight for posterity. He added that Buhari believed that more information on the Boko Haram insurgency should be provided for Nigerians and the international community
