President Buhari Commiserate With Family Members Of Alex Badeh.

President Muhammadu Buhari has directed security agencies to find the killers of former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh (rtd), describing his murder as “very sad and unfortunate.”

Naija News reports Mr Badeh was killed on Tuesday after unknown gun men attacked his vehicle along the Abuja-Keffi road.

In a statement by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina, President Buhari commiserated with the family of the late four-star general, his friends and professional colleagues in the military, and the people and government of Adamawa State.

“Noting that the late Mr Badeh, who was also a former Chief of Air Staff, attained professional fulfilment in his over three decades military career, President Buhari regrets that he fell victim to incidence of violent and fatal attacks on the nation’s highways.

“He directs security agencies to find the killers of the 15th Chief of Defence Staff and bring them to face the full force of the law, while ensuring greater security and safety for all users of the country’s roads.

“The president prays that God Almighty comforts all those who mourn Air Chief Marshal Badeh and grant his soul peaceful rest,” Mr Adesina said.

Naija News reports that Badeh’s family members are in United States as they are under watchlist of Department of State Service and Nigerian Immigration service for their Father’s crime.

Recall that Badeh was accused of mismanaging about N3.9 billion arms funds while in office and is currently being prosecuted by the anti-graft agency, EFCC.
