President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption campaign has been bedevilled by scandals and rumours of scandals in recent times.
The list has just been lengthened by a contract scandal in the ministry of defence which has landed a brigadier-general in military court.
At the centre of the latest development are Mansur Dan-Ali, a retired brigadier-general and minister of defence, Danjuma Nanfo, the immediate past permanent secretary in the ministry, and LYM Hassan, a brigadier-general and coordinator of peacekeeping.
Hassan is now in detention and facing court-martial.
