SWITZERLAND, JUNE 16 – Former General Officer Commanding 8 division, Sokoto, Maj. General Hakeem Otiki has been dismissed from the army after the General Court Martial set up by the Nigerian Army found him guilty on all five counts.
The court headed by the Chief of Policy and Plans, Nigerian Army, Lt. Gen. Lamidi Adeosun found Otiki guilty of disobedience to service orders, missing fund and theft of public property, among others.
It also demoted him to Brig. General with a severe reprimand.
The sentence which was delivered late last night, was, however, subject to confirmation by the Army Council.
Adeosun also ordered that all monies totalling N135.8million, $6,600 recovered by the Special Investigation Bureau be returned to the coffers of the Nigerian Army.
