The General Officer Commanding(GOC), 8 Division, Sokoto, Major General Hakeem Otiki, has been placed under house arrest, Daily Sun has gathered.
The officer who was redeployed to the Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON), is currently being detained at the Officers Mess where he is being guarded by heavily armed soldiers and may be moved to Abuja anytime from now.
When finally in Abuja, he is expected to be grilled by personnel from the Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI), Special Intelligence Bureau (SIB), and Nigerian Army Corps of Military Police (NACMP).
This is just as Daily Sun gathered that the so-called VIP, allegedly being escorted by the soldiers who happens to be the younger brother of the former GOC, actually connived with the soldiers to steal the N400million as he is nowhere to be found.
Similarly, contrary to speculations that two soldiers have been arrested in connection with the crime, Daily Sun, gathered that it is not true.
What happened was that one of the soldiers in the escort who refused to join with his colleague in the crime was the one who returned and reported the matter to the authorities.
