Nigeria’s secret police, Department of State Security (DSS) has arrested the erstwhile chief of army staff (COAS), Lieutenant-General Azubuike Ihejirika (rtd) has been arrested by operatives of the DSS

The ex-army boss was reportedly picked up Tuesday night at his residence in Maitama, Abuja.

It is believed that Ihejerika was arrested in connection with Arms deal probe involving former national security adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki.

It would be recalled that an Australian Negotiator, Dr Stephen Davis insisted that former governor of Borno State, Modu Sheriff and former Chief of Army Staff, General Onyeabo Azubuike Ihejirika are Boko Haram sponsors.

But Ihejirika described the allegations against him as frivolous and unfounded.

He said the allegation was meant to divert the attention of the country and its security agencies thereby causing division.
