'I am losing my freedom to a fatherland I fought to defend" Alex Badeh

Former Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Air Chief Marshal Alex Sabundu Badeh, has said that he is being persecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), describing as false the allegation that he is being investigated over the $2.1 billion arms deal.
Badeh, who in a statement yesterday, said that he was not involved in the arms scandal, also denied the allegation that five properties were acquired by him from the diversion of the $2.1 billion meant for the prosecution of the war against the insurgency in the North-east.
He said: “I was chief of air staff from October 2012 to January 2014 and then appointed CDS. During my time serving as the CDS, funds for weapons were directly released to the chiefs of air staff, army staff and naval staff and not to me. I had no control over the funds and yet I am being accused of embezzling weapons’ funds.”
