The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has absolved the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai, of any infraction of the laws over the purchase of two houses in Dubai, United Emirate, worth $1.5 million.

Buratai had been in the eyes of the storm with individuals, right activists and civil society groups calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to relieve him of his appointment. But the Federal Government had defended him saying he did not contravene any law.

Following the clearance by the Federal Government, CCB in a reply to a request by an Abuja-based lawyer, Ugochukwu Osuagwu, also stated that the Army Chief did not err as he disclosed he Dubai properties in his Assets Form.
