The Conference of Nigerian Civil Rights Activists, on Tuesday, demanded the immediate removal of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen. Tukur Buratai, over his alleged ownership of choice properties in Dubai,  the commercial nerve centre of the United Arab Emirate.

The CNCRA said this in a statement by its Convener who is also the President of the Campaign for Democracy, Mr. Ifeanyi Odili, in Abuja.

It explained that the continued retention of Buratai in his position by President Muhammadu Buhari, would rubbish the current anti-corruption crusade of the current administration.

The group  said Buhari should relief the COAS of his position “as he is a square peg in a round hole.”

The statement said, “The recent revelation of the procurement of properties in Dubai by the COAS as published by Sahara Reporters on June 25, 2016 which was subsequently denied by the Army spokesman, is a dent on the integrity of Buhari’s administration.

“The Buhari administration has been showcasing anti-graft posture and the massacre of hundreds of Nigerians in Zaria is in contrast to democratic ethos and norms.

“According to Sahara Reporters, Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, General Tukur Buratai, and his two wives are joint owners of a Dubai property worth of $1.5m that was paid for in one transaction.

“The report indicated that the money for the purchase of the property may have come from a vehicle contract scam while Mr. Buratai was the Director of Procurement at the Army HQ.
