Military authorities place GOC, whose N400m soldiers carted away, under house arrest

Military authorities have placed immediate-past General Officer Commanding (GOC), 8 Division, Sokoto, Major General Hakeem Otiki, under house arrest after some soldiers carted away at least N400 million under his watch.

Otiki, who was redeployed to Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON), is being detained in the Officers Mess until he can be moved to Abuja for interrogation by personnel from the Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI), Special Intelligence Bureau (SIB), and Nigerian Army Corps of Military Police (NACMP).

He is reportedly being guarded by heavily armed soldiers who are carefully screening his visitors.
