Usman further said the retirements were connected with the investigation by the Presidential Committee investigating defence contracts.

The Nigerian Army has confirmed the retirement of some senior officers from service following the approval of the Army Council.
A statement issued by the acting Director of Army Public Relations, Col.
Sani Usman, on Saturday, June 11, said the approval was confirmed at the meeting of the council on Thursday.
Although Usman did not disclose the number of officers affected, he said their retirement was based on service exigencies.
“The Army wishes to inform the general public that quite a number of senior officers of the Nigerian Army were retired from service yesterday.
“Those retired were mainly some major-generals, brigadiers-general, colonels, lieutenant-colonels and a major.
“Their retirement was based on service exigencies,’’ the statement said.
It recalled that not too long ago some officers were investigated for partisanship during the 2015 general elections.
Usman further said the retirements were connected with the investigation by the Presidential Committee investigating defence contracts.

He said some officers had already been arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Usman advised the public not to read the development out of context.
