Fresh news report as A General, who is the coordinator of peace keeping in the Ministry of Defense, Lym Hassan, has been secretly recorded allegedly threatening to ‘eliminate’ Pres. Buhari over a defense contract.
He was arraigned before the military court on October 30, 2017 and charged with two allegations: spreading rumours that Buhari was dead and demanding $600,000 bribe from a defence contractor.
The Cable had reported that Buhari approved a $1,464,750 contract on September 26, 2016 for the relocation and refurbishment of Level 2 Ministry Hospital under the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) following a directive from the UN.
In February 2017, the contract was awarded to Opems Integrated Concepts Ltd for $1 million for a two-month execution period ending April 2017. But the job was not done, with Nigeria failing to meet the August 2017 deadline for the relocation of the hospital.
