Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have arrested former Director of Military Intelligence, Major General Wiwa. General Wiwa's arrest was in continuation of investigations into the disbursement of the $2.1 billion arms fund by the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki. The General is a younger brother to late Ken Saro-Wiwa, the late Ogoni rights activist, who was executed by the Abacha’s government in connection with the Ogoni crises of the 1990’s. He was the Deputy Commandant at the Armed Forces Resettlement Centre, Oshodi, before his arrest. According to Vanguard, security sources revealed that the senior officer, who is at the moment being detained at one of the major military barracks in Abuja, might have been arrested because of the sensitive positions he held.
 General Wiwa was at several times, Military Assistant to late General Owoye Azazi when he served as Chief of Defence Staff. He was Principal Staff Officer, PGSO, at the office of the National Security Adviser when Azazi served as NSA. He continued in the position as PGSO when Col Sambo Dasuki was NSA and was later appointed Director of Military Intelligence when Lt. General Azubuike Ihejirika became the Chief of Army staff.

Pls if he does not have anything to do wit s case of Dasuki they shld leave him alone. Nigeria can not afford to withstand another militant unrest. They shld investigate well. Not cus he held position wen Dasuki was NSA.
