Dubai Houses: Buratai accuses Boko Haram of being after him

Spread the love

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai has personally responded to allegations that he acquired houses in Dubai, United Arab Emirates using the proceeds of corruption, claiming that the allegations were the handiwork of cyber and internet terrorist who had been defeated on land in the epicenter of Boko Haram insurgency.

Briefing the media on the 2016 Nigerian Army Day Celebration, Buratai said: “For those making allegation about houses and weaponry procurement, the media should read between the lines. We have completely defeated the terrorists and insurgents (Boko Haram) on land and the remnants are fleeing. They can’t hold territories but are running to border countries.

 “Now they have migrated to cyberspace and the internet. What they are now doing is resorting to cyber and internet (online) terrorism to distract the Nigerian Army. But I assure you, we will defeat them. We are developing our own cyber warriors in the Nigerian Army to deal with their threat. I assure you we will also defeat them”.

Regarding the refurbished weaponry and logistics equipment some of which were said to be failing, Buratai said, “This is all part of the campaign of calumny. I am always highly concerned about doing the right thing. My officers know my position. We have carried out several investigations and due diligence on issues of arms and logistics procurement and their quality/capabilities. So there is no room for sub standard weaponry as claimed”.

It would be recalled that an online news medium recently accused Lt. General Buratai and his two wives of paying the sum of 1,498,534.00 AED (N120 million/$419,000) for a property, Project TFG Marina Hotel Unit 2711 in Dubai in 2013.

The medium further alleged that “between July 24 and August 17, 2015, General Buratai paid a total sum of N42.2 million into TFG Sigma 111’s account in Nigeria (Skye Bank 1770380452) for a second house.

The Army had earlier stated that he made the investments from his savings.

  45. What has epicenter gat to do properties in dubai? Do you have them or not? Yes or no before your epiconer.

  46. Mal you can’t expect the satanic bokoharam not to go against you. It’s that, God and Nigerians appreciate what you are doing, otherwise, it’ll have been a different story. Because many have come but, failed woefully.

    • Who is talking about Boko haram? We need an explanation where the money come from, Two houses in Dubai, How much is his salary?

    • Calling it houses is a mistake , that’s shopping mall where u can buy and sale , that mall has at list 1000 workers in Dubia there and we are here in Nigeria without job and government is promising us foreign investor’s, while they are investing our money aboard , where is the spirit of one Nigeria they are telling us.

  47. Even if that is true,so we forgive you because of your great contribution to our nation.ALLAH Bless you Sir.

  48. More corrupt men hiding under buari government will be exposed, first it was a Chieftain of APC, then it was Ashia Buari, now it is Buratai.

  49. Calling it houses is a mistake , that’s shopping mall where u can buy and sale , that mall has at list 1000 workers in Dubia there and we are here in Nigeria without job and government is promising us foreign investor’s, while they are investing our money aboard , where is the spirit of one Nigeria they are telling us. Let’s the man in question give us the reasons why he build in Dubai, no enough land in Nigeria or what? Politician and government officials has fooled this country in the name of one Nigeria, one Nigeria is a scam to humanity, but his Hausa brothers are very much in support of him

  50. What concerns boko haram and properties in Dubai?defend urself and leave boko haram out of this okay

  51. Infact if everybody are complain about Brutai our father in yoruba land Olu Falae you are not in position to conplain sir are you not the one collect one hundred million out of the money that they want to use buy harms to face bokoharam sir just keep yr mouth shut because yoruba are no more have trust on you Afenife Ibi that they are answer Afenifere Agbalagba Onijekuje Alailojuti

    • All this looting remember that’s the problems we are facing in Nigeria and the course of joblessness in labour market. Who suffers more poor masses, because the children of the rich is in aboard doing their studies comfortably, where is the hope of the poor in Nigeria?

    • Don’t disrespect older because of you know that buhari and tinubu collected out that money.?

  52. bi iwo ba serere, ara ki o ha yao

  53. Why is buhari fighting ihejiriaka, anti igbos

  54. Don’t divert our attentions away from an act of corruption levelled against you by saying it is the handiwork of book haram. Please what is the correlation between you owned properties in Dubai and boko haram together? Nigerian soldier under the present administration, nawa o.

  55. Being hypocrites knew the truth,but unable to be set free by the truth,simply bcos of the truth agains his own decision.if you refuse to do my will,i will bring you down by fire by force,who foolling who?

  59. Buhari is nt after his pple, but d lgbos, n that will show that we ar nt one nigeria ok

  60. Then own up n tell d world how u got d money!

  61. Instead of answering if he had houses in Dubai or not, book haram were after all Nigerians not only you.

  62. Don’t worry Gen.

    They cannot succeed in tarnishing your image because you are doing a good work for Nigerians.

  63. I believe u general, even if nobody does.

  64. Dnt worry, i wl ask d boko boys

  65. S-T-O-R-Y. Nigerians are not fools as this government think.

  66. Laughable lamentations of hollow logic…rickety argument… tragicomedy

  67. We sweep it under the carpet,since it is from APC.


  69. I can understand Gen Tukur Bukaratai frivolous statement. Boko haram wants to implicate him, because he defeats boko haram. It means it is a frame up by boko haram. Boko haram owns the properties. The properties don’t belong to Gen. The Gen has no money. He is koboless. He can’t steal money. He is not corrupt. He is a saint.

  70. He has been cleared by the investigative team. He’s only a share holder to the said property and not the sole owner. It is legal and not against the law. This administration can’t make a cheap mistake. Take it or leave it.

  71. Oh boy! I didn’t know Naija has some epic mugus; for them to believe this frivolous excuse.

  72. Do you have the two houses as alleged?

  73. Theif you colleague BUHARI is covering you

  74. so one cant own properity again in niga

  75. U will believe him after all he is talking to the monkeys and baboons in the ZOOOO…

  76. Does mean even boko haram know he own a houses in dubai or what?

  77. This Hausa thief in Uniform.

  78. Thank God it is Boko-Haram. It is not PDP or GEJ.

  79. Mr man stop taking Nigerians for a ride,we all know that nothing will be done to you so pls spare us the insult,but mark my word the day of reckoning is very near for Nigeria

  80. So na boko haram come buy the house for am abi.

  81. Still waiting to hear there is an ongoing invetigation , but as usual , frivolous stories, this will be swept under the rug shortly.

    The usual selective scepticism; story of naija.

  82. Burutai is talking arrant nonsense

  83. You deserve to have houses everywhere my brother, including Paradise.

  84. I mr mallam and mr buruhari formed a group to be killing people just to win a game,finally we succesfuly won d game,now it is time to enjoy the fruit of our labour,mr mallam made away with some part of d money do i need to shout ole?i can’t bcus if they catch me i will confes how come of d money,so mr buruhari don’t talk or else i wil implicate u

  85. Allah, yana tare da maigaskiya! D trust n confidence we have on u is uncomfortable. Stick to Allah swt no harm can get to u. We pledged dat we shall b behind u in prayers until d end, insha Allah.

  86. Era of arrest when ever a northern is in power.

  87. Buratai shouldn’t be a judge on his own case. The onus is on Boko Haram to prove it’s case. I do not expect contrary reaction from Buratai.
