Former Director of Military Intelligence, Major General Letam Wiwa has denied reports that he was arrested in connection with the $2.1 billion arms deal fraud.

Vanguard reported earlier that Wiwa had been apprehended and was being detained at a military facility in Abuja.

“I just woke up this morning, and people started calling me that they saw reports of my arrest in the papers,” the General said while speaking to Premium Times.

“I was really surprised. And that must be a magic arrest. I am now sitting in my office in Oshodi, Lagos.

The papers were just too audacious. They didn’t even ask the army whether any such arrest happened. There was not even an invitation, let alone an arrest,” he added.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has also denied arresting Wiwa.

Wiwa is currently the deputy commandant at the Armed Forces Resettlement Centre in Oshodi, Lagos and is the younger brother of late Ogoni rights activist, Ken Saro-Wiwa.
