The Department of State Security DSS this afternoon arrested formerChief of Army Staff, General Azubuike Ihejirika. It is believed that his arrest is not unconnected with the current arms deal probe which had seen many top military brass arrested in the last couple of months  with many of them facing prosecution presently.

Ihejirika was the first Ibo man to be named the Chief of Army Staff since the end of the Nigerian civil war.
