Two ministers, three ex-ministers, six permanent secretaries and more military officers have been indicted in the $2.1billion arms deals scandal.
The indictment is in the fourth report of the Special Investigative Panel on Arms Procurement in the Armed Forces. But one year after the submission of the report, the government is yet to take any action on it.
Some members of the panel are worried that some Presidency officials do not want the report released to the public. They wonder why others implicated in the arms deals probe are yet to be named or handed over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
A source who spoke to The Nation said: “Going by the records of the panel, October 23 marked exactly one year that the fourth report of the committee was submitted to President Muhammadu Buhari.
