In the light of the statement credited to former President, Goodluck Jonathan, that his administration bought heavy military equipment to combat the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist, top sources in the Nigeria Military on Thursday, October 27, presented a contrary claim.
According to the top Military Officers as reported by the Nation Newspaper, Jonathan was deceived into believing that the equipment were bought.
“The Military deceived Jonathan. The former President released the money, but was hijacked and diverted unknowingly to him,” a top Military source said.
This confessional statement came, as Jonathan recently tried to exonerate former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, of corruption allegations involving the $2.2 billion, voted for arms procurement.
Jonathan, said he did not believe the former NSA stole the money, because weapons were bought for the military to fight Boko Haram.
However, according to several Military sources, who asked to remain anonymous because of the “sensitive” nature of the matter, many of the weapons bought under the former President, were “unserviceable and useless”.
One said the Jonathan administration, bought at least three fairly used (Tokunbo) Alpha Jets for the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), and two Helicopters. However, the Jets were, the sources claimed, “not worth anything, because they were not weaponised, and the Helicopters were cannibalised.”
“The two aircraft are among the four Alpha Jets bought from the United States in 2015, by the immediate past administration to enhance the operational capability of the NAF, to combat Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East.
“The aircraft however, before now, could not be deployed in the theatre of operation, due to the inherent weapon delivery deficiency, hence its limited use for training purposes.


“The urgent need in recent times to commit all NAF available platforms to Operation Lafiya Dole, to enhance the success of the counter-insurgency operation, necessitated the Service to look inward to seek ways of achieving its drive for self-reliance, through research and development.
“A number of vendors invited to Nigeria to assess the platforms, had concluded that it would be difficult or almost impossible to undertake the project, since the Original Equipment Manufacturer had long closed down the production line. A few others who agreed to the possibility of having the aircraft reconfigured to carry munitions, have also submitted proposals for initial assessment fee, ranging from $20,000 – $30,000, before they could come up with the actual cost for the project.
“Convinced that the project would work, the NAF consequently assembled a team of technicians to develop a feasible model for the project. The model worked on ground, and has since been mounted on the Alpha Jets, and test flew successfully.
“This feat is a major research and development breakthrough for the NAF, and the nation, as a huge foreign exchange saver, given that the project only cost about N4, 000,000.00, compared to what would be required to have it done abroad,” the NAF said.
However, the former President may have been referring to the purchase of six decommissioned Norwegian battleships, bought purportedly on behalf of the Navy, by former Niger Delta Militant Leader, Government Ekpemupolo, also known as Tompolo.
The purchase had caused a huge row in Norway, forcing that country’s Military leadership to apologize to the Lawmakers.
The battleships were said to be used for anti-piracy operations on Nigerian waters.
