Prominent lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari’s war against corruption.

Adegboruwa also questioned the decision of the Federal Government to clear Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai of corruption charges without a thorough investigation.

“I believe it has exposed the hypocrisy of the Buhari administration as not fighting the war against corruption on a clean slate,” the lawyer said according to Daily Post.

“They should have allowed the agencies of government such as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) to properly investigate the matter. The Minister of Defence and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation have no statutory authority to undertake criminal investigation,” he added.

Buratai was accused of using public funds to purchase properties in Dubai. The army chief has however said that he used his savings to acquire the properties.
