Military generals stole more than politicians, Makarfi says

Ahmed Makarfi, has said that the ongoing $2.1 billion arms deal probe, shows that the military chiefs stole more than the politicians.

According to the Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), national Caretaker Committee, despite the rot in the military, the politicians are the ones always accused of corruption.

“Go to the $2.1billion arms money. $2.1billion is about N700 billion. If you total the money that was said to have been diverted into politics, it’s not even up to five per cent of this money.
