Secret Army Report Implicates NSA Azazi, Ibori, Alamieyeseigha, Henry And Sunny Okah In Sale Of Military Weapons To Niger Delta Militants

Clockwise: DSP Alams, NSA Azazi, James Ibori and Sunday Bowei Okah
By SaharaReporters, New York

Saharareporters has obtained a secret report by the Nigerian Army implicating current National Security Adviser, Gen Andrew Azazi (rtd), former Governors James Ibori and DSP Alamieyeseigha, and former Director-General of the State Security Service, Lt. Col Kayode Are (rtd) in the massive diversion and sale of Nigerian army weaponry to Niger Delta militants.

SaharaReporters obtained the intelligence report one week after Sonny Bowie Okah denounced members of his family as “killers” and vowed to destroy them, and a few days after the State Security Services intercepted 13 container loads of arms being imported into Nigeria through the Lagos port.

Sonny Bowei Okah, a brother to Henry Okah, the leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta currently facing terrorism charges in South Africa, is portrayed in the report as a central character in the deals. Also mentioned in the document are Major Gen R.O. Adekhegba, a former Director of the Directorate of Military Intelligence, Henry Okah himself, Major S.A. Akubo, a serving army officer, and ten soldiers who worked with the Nigerian Army Ordinance Corps.

The 35-page report, which is dated November 2007, is the product of an intensive investigation by the headquarters of the Nigerian Army Intelligence Corps following a tip-off by a soldier and a red flag by the SSS that army weapons were flowing from an ordinance depots in Kaduna and Jaji to militants.

Azazi, who was chief of army staff at the time, Adekhegba, former army intelligence chief, and Are, the then SSS director, reportedly covered up the matter. Ibori and Alamieyeseigha were named as having financed the arms deals.

The report, suppressed for long by the military hierarchy and the Federal Government, details in shocking detail how Sunny Okah funneled over N100 million to Major Akubo and the soldiers in exchange for over 7,000 cache of assorted arms and ammunition.

The report reveals that, within a seven-year period, Sonny Okah colluded with Major Akubo to move the weaponry. “They would surreptitiously drive Isuzu pick-up vans and sewage disposal trucks into ordinance depots in Jaji and Kaduna and then ferry out high-caliber and light weapons, even ammunitions,” said a source within the intelligence community who also had access to the report.

The report describes Sunny Okah as the major middleman between the soldiers and the militants, including his brother Henry.

“The amount of weapons stolen are enough to hold not just Port Harcourt hostage but the whole of Nigeria,” the report notes. “Should criminals decide to spread out to major cities of Nigeria with just a few of these weapons and cause chaos simultaneously, it is doubtful if we will not have a national state of emergency situation in our hands.”

The weapons include rocket launchers, UMGs, GPMGs, G3 and Mark IV rifles, Barretta rifles, AK 47 and bagfuls of ammunitions.

The investigation was triggered when a certain Private Zamanu Adamu who, while on guard at the ordinance depot in Jaji, Kaduna, in September 2007, reported that the seal on the depot had been broken and that some items had been removed.  

In its investigation, the army intelligence corps interrogated Sunny Okah, Major Akubo and the soldiers who confessed to the crime. The investigators unearthed the fact that there was an earlier arms sale at 1 Ordinance Base in Kaduna. Major Akubo is named as the prime suspect in that deal.

Our investigation revealed that, rather than get to the bottom of the case and bring perpetrators to book, both the SSS and the Directorate of Military Intelligence engaged in official cover-ups. Azazi, Are and Adekhegba spearheaded the campaign to bury the report.

“It’s true that the SSS launched an investigation quite all right, and even got the army authorities to release the suspects – Major Akubo and the soldiers – to it for interrogation,” said an army source. He added that “the investigation was soon truncated and the suspects, including Sunny Okah, were released even after they confessed to the crime.”

Our sources disclosed that then Major Akubo was taken in by the Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI), but was interrogated by a one-man panel appointed by Adekhegba. He was curiously released to return to his unit based on instructions from Azazi, even when his involvement in the scandalous deals had been firmly established.

At the time the arms thefts began, Azazi was General Officer Commanding the 1st Division in Kaduna. Investigators suggested that he handled the case shabbily in order to cover up his “command failure”.

“Is there a likelihood that this case was shabbily handled in order that Gen Azazi’s failures may remain undiscovered?” the report asked. “Did Gen Azazi use course mate influence on the then DG of DSS Lt Col LKK Are (rtd) to ensure that the case remain suppressed? Otherwise, why did it take until now when Are is no longer in office for the DSS to reopen the case and be willing to cooperate fully.” The report added, “Gen Azazi obviously has more questions to answer regarding his roles in this case.”

The report fingered Ibori and Alamieyeseigha as financiers of the arms acquisition. Both men, who were state governors at the time, allegedly provided the funds with which Sunny Okah went on his arms shopping spree. 
 
“These two politicians are mentioned as financiers of the arms acquisition project,” the report said. “Certainly, they would not have provided money without knowing the source of the weapons. Simply put, a breach of security of this magnitude was deliberately masterminded by state governors.”

Major Akubo is reported to have confessed to investigators that Sunny Okah approached him in 2004 stating that Ibori and Alamieyeseigha had given him a job to source for arms on their behalf. Okah asked for Akubo’s help to deliver on the job.

Ibori recently appealed the ruling by a court in Dubai that he should be extradited to the UK to face charges for money laundering. Meanwhile Alamieyeseigha, a convict who served a short jail term for corrupt enrichment, is championing the President Goodluck Jonathan’s presidential election bid.

The report recommended that Azazi and Adekhegba be sanctioned and that the indicted governors should be further investigated.

The recommendations were not implemented. In fact, shortly before the report was written, Azazi forwarded the name of the former DMI chief for a national award while Sunny Okah was set free. Sunny Okah has since been recruited by the Jonathan administration and is being used to press the case against his brothers, Charles and Henry, over the October 1 Abuja bomb blast.

A few weeks ago, Jonathan appointed Azazi as his new national security adviser. Despite his indictment in the report, Azazi enjoyed one of the fastest career elevations among Nigerian military officers. Between mid-2006 and mid-2007, he rose from Major General to Lieutenant General to General.

However, on August 20, 2008, months after the report was written, Umaru Yar’Adua fired Azazi as Chief of Defense Staff and retired him from the Army. Two sources have told Saharareporters that the arms deal report of 2007 influenced Yar’Adua’s decision to fire Azazi from his post. One of those sources revealed that then Vice President Jonathan was aware of the reason for Azazi’s firing. “By asking General Azazi to come out of retirement and become his NSA, is President Jonathan out to register his disagreement with the judgment of the late president?” asked the source.

However, Major Akubo and the soldiers have since been court-martialed, dismissed from the army and are serving jail terms.

The investigative report wondered how widespread the theft and sale of military arms thefts were, not just in the army but in the navy, the air force, the police, and other armed agencies. It also raised questions about the role of politicians as financiers of the deals, and wondered about how the arms shopping affected national security.

After an overview of the many issues raised by the arms deals and the highly placed individuals involved in them, the investigative report formulated a conspiracy theory. It suggested that there was a link between the aborted Orkar coup in 1989, the 2001 Ikeja Cantonment arms depot explosions, the arms theft at 1BODK, and the militancy in the Niger Delta.

“It is believed that there is an orchestrated plan by the Niger Deltans to secede from Nigeria which is being played out over the years with every opportunity they have,” the report concluded.

TOO LATE TO BE TRUE

Delay is an outlaw in the realm of True Justice. I have a very simple question on this report.
Why now?

WE MUST MINIMISE OUR SUBJECTIVE BIAS.

The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one(Malcolm Forbes).The intelligent person is not one who merely knows what is good what is bad.The intelligent person is one who when he sees what is good follows it and when he sees evil shuns it.
We must minimise our subjective bias,we all know they are guilty,but why some us are backing them? Or simply because they came from the same region? Don't be too ethnocentric please,be fair minded.

Niger deltans are the source of all the problems beseiging our great nigera.behind any criminal act in high places in nigeria is a niger deltan.pointing a finger to the north is outrightly outrageous.an i'l advice us to stop making inflamatory remarks that wil jeopardize the unity of Nigeria. Ok"

The National Assembly is

The National Assembly is aware of this I believe, but nothing has been done. Or have they been bribed?

A critical look at the issue, My comment.

Your report on this issue is so sensitive and should be lookat again for a second time. i have some question about the whole report.
1. You said that the late president was aware of the said report, why did he continue to work with Ibori given his evil anticedent. If it is the Umaru that i know too well, he would have sent all those implicated in the report to jail.
2. Why do we always believe that other regions are not good leaders. why is all this allegation at this time. Nigeria is greater than the south, West, North nor East. the ordinary Nigerian from this region want peace, love and bread on their table. All these political scandals and sponsorship will one day fade away. i must warn all our political elites, that if they fail to build well now, Tunisia is an example for all to learn. may we not have such experience in our land. Sahara reporters, as much as i love and like your reportage, sometimes you are biase against the government. pls let your report be balance. i am from the middle belt of Nigeria and I LOVE NIGERIA. May God Bless the federal republic of Nigeria.

Is this link to the report of

Is this link to the report of a panel? I am really disappointed in the content. A panel to investigate is writing a report like looks like a thesis whith questions that the panel should have answered. Are, AZAZI, and others are in nigeria but the reports is as if they were not questioned during the course of the investigation. This report is un professional, Lack merit but only sensational. I do not think Nigeria can move forward with this type of investigation.

Re: GEJ by Egwelor

I read the piece of shit you posted and came up with one question for you (after having assessed the type of Nigerian you are). The question is, what brought the issue of "North" in this whole mess that was masterminded by your folks?

It is better you face the reality than dragging sentiments into it. What ever mess u do u always link innocent people into it.

"The evil that men do....."
"Those that live by the sword....."

TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD?

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE OUTSIDE WORLD ALREADY THINK OF US? CRAB! LOOK THE MI5, CIA AND MOZART KNEW ABOUT THE 1ST OCTOBER BOMBING AND WARNED THE NIGERIAN AUTHORITIES, WHAT HAPPENED? "BANG AT 50!" SO YOU THINK THEY DONT ALREADY KNOW ABOUT THIS GUN RUNNING SCANDAL? I BELEIVE THEY DO. THESE GUYS ARE MORE ADVANCED THAN YOU IMAGINE. I AM RESPONDING TO BE YOU BECAUSE YOU SEEM TO BE A WELL MEANING NNIGERIAN CONCERNED ABOUT THE NATION AND NOT LIKE OTHERS HERE WHO ARE TALKING RUBBISH TRYING TO PROTECT THE DESTROYERS OF THE NATION.

Rubish

 What is in a name? Whether you people like it or not, the will of God will prevail in 2011 for the good of all Nigerians.

we must be careful about what

we must be careful about what we say about this country to the outside world.

SERIOUS MATTER

This is a very serious matter, if this is true then its only unfutunate. Jonathan may have had to make do with Azazi due to the issues tha are on ground, the agitation and the threat to his life.
But, this is very serious matter, its grievous.

GEJ

EBELEMI is a Nigerian ijaw name and anyone that says otherwise should tell us which names are ijaw and which are not....
Anyway, this report is filled with lies and fiction and anyone can make an allegation...
why can the north not just accept that other Nigerians have the right to aso rock;There is a gang up and build up of sentiments against the Niger delta which the evil intention of using military might to oppress the people
Anyway, I have always believed that Nigeria in its present structure is a waste of time....lets allocate the states in its present form into 6 regions within Nigeria and let each region rule its self and have its own laws. Then let each region nominate 3 people into a centre government there by having 18 people in the centre government
The centre government will represent Nigeria in international affairs and handle issues that deals with security & defence, education,Power & energy,Transport, immigration.Every other issue should be handled by the regional government.
These 18 people will elect a leader with a term of 3 years maximum as head of government and leadership will be rotated amongst each region.

LOL SO TRUE. YOU KNOW SOME

LOL SO TRUE. YOU KNOW SOME PEOPLE JUST DONT HAVE SENSE.

We are Watching you GEJ and Azazi Company

Wonderful, oh my goodness. Any attempt to fool Nigerians will surely fail. We accept that nobody goes into politics for charitable intentions, however GEJ and his association with MEND has long been a problem. Azazi can say what he wants, and his PR can write until chicken has teeth, the media to which you guys live for, published this report, so there is truth to it. When you want cheap publicity promoting you eating chicken foot and partying with young girls, then the media is good, when they expose your dirty activities then they are bad. Oil block, gun running and bunkering, you guys have taken madness to new heights, exceeding Abacha's madness, but the good lord will rid us of Bayelsa Mafia.

THE ARM SALE SAGA

If the report is true I won't be surprised.GEJ was Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State when this illegality was been perpetrated and as such GEJ is very much aware of this crimes.Where in the world are militants celebrated other than Nigeria.What should be at back of our minds when we see our president at every given opportunity,beaming with smile,shaking hands with militants at the presidential villa on National and International news media?Who claimed MEND membership when he responded to the oct.1 bombing that one of there own is now president.Abeg Nigerians make una shine una eyes!

Mr.Ukueje

Mr.Ukueje ,Mr. Ukueje ,Mr, Ukueje , I called you 3times by your father's family name because you have a Father, in Ijaw Nation, tank thank you by confirming that GEJ who does not have any Ijaw Named attached to his names might have been a Gahanna man but have leaved all his life in Ogbia Bayelsa State. But it is not a reason for him not to stand for Election. But the truth is that EBELEMI is a Ghana name not IJaw. You see I was a strong supporter of GEJ until , he added Azikwe on his name and change the EBELEMI to "EBELE" please can you tell me the mean of EBELEMI and why he hate to answer that name that is on his CV or what exactly is on his CV ? Why did deface, alter and delete the last words "MI", does the name EBELEMI proteins Danger? or Evil, which one is his fathers name AZKIWE,EBELE,EBELEMI, JONATHAN OR GOODLUCK?.

Why I ask this is that, when OBAMA stand for USA ELECTION, all about him was in the internet , his Muslim name, place of birth, grand-father, mother, father, his works how his father came to America, why his mother remarried to an Indonesian man and every thing so it is not true that when such names are asked that it is GEJ opponents at works , we need to know who is ruling us . Also you lied, unless GEJ rigged the coming Election he can not win PDP primary talk less of the presidency, that is why he has postponed it many times, changing Election time table, smuggling Electoral laws for Amendments, stop political parties from holding rally in Abuja, stopping all form of Igbo's Gathering, Humiliating the Igbo Elders and many deity deals, all this has made his popularity diminished, coupled with the utterances of so called Elders of Niger Delta- like Edwin Clark. So if you doubt me ask SR to conduct online votes here.

Again , No one ever plays with the issue of national security, it has been compromised that is why a lot of AMR is int he hands of Criminals, robbers and kidnappers who easly lay hands to such warpons, that is why every nation on earth is very careful to elect president who is not a Militant, to avoid putting their Nations into ethnic war. if the Army report is truth as I believe based on what Asari, Dukubo, and Sunny Okah has said so far then , why must AZIZI be made NSA?in case you don't know many of those Army personal involved are serving Jail terms, for steal and selling 7000 AK47s. MPGs to Niger Delta Militants, sponsored by the government of GEJ< ALARM

BIAS REPORTS ON ARMS THEFT

I never doubt your report until now. I can see that you are bias in your report. The issue you reported was properly investigated and offenders purnished.Gen Azazi was Chief of Defence Staff then.I am surprised that the Chief of Army was not mentioned, this point to the fact that you are not objective in your report. i will advice that you confirm your report before publishing. this is not only General Aziza you are talking about but this country and we must be careful about what we say about this country to the outside world.
I also want to let you know that i am not holding brief for the Army or Gen Aziza, but my concern is about this country.

Azazi Fingered

the secret report fingering Gen, Azazi and some other prominent Nigerians,--two former governors and a two former intelligence chiefs is very disheartning to say the least. The way arms and ammunition find thier way to the hands of militants in the Niger Delta is an indictment on the path of the military.that the report was surpressed all this while tells alot about those we have entrusted our country's security in their hands. We are busy talking about corruption, and our politicians are busy recycling men who have sold out our country's unity.The national security adviser should humbly please resign, or tell Nigerians the truth about this matter. For the two former governors,it goes again to show that some people never believed in the oneness of the entity called Nigeria.The presidency should come out and declare thier stand on this issue. This is my sincere comment and opinion,of which i am entitled to.

Nonsensical and Junk Journalism

Having read through the article on gun running between soldiers and civilians, I believe it would be justice denied if a thorough cross examination of the writer of the report, the motive of the publisher in Sahara Reporters and the actors of this (18R) adult rated movie is not conducted. I guess for security reasons the name of the security report writer has been excluded which strikes an uncomfortable string in my memory as this publication in itself infringes on that same reason. First and foremost, it is important we put a proper perspective to the gravity of the crime committed if it did happen. It is very serious. Secondly this publication impresses on me that the Yardua government carried out the trial. If it did then Yaradua ought to have been questioned in this publication having seen the report for various reasons; He did not court marshal but only sacked Aziza, the sack of which is not true but a retirement. It was partial in sending some to jail and not the entire group that committed the crime. It promoted a general with too bad a record too quickly and had a less than average understanding of what national security is all about. It is worth noting that the National Security Adviser at the time who was a General himself (Gusau) must have been involved in all of these issues which relate to national security hence a part of the failure, his first major failing that I will be noting. This report wholly missed out on him which is rather not surprising.
I believe this writer should have concentrated more on the failings of Jonathan’s former boss in the person of Yaradua and his security adviser Gusau. If we take a mirror look at this analysis i.e everything now seen in reverse, I’m sure I would be forgiven for saying the positives would sound like; Yaradua’s government was sound, Yaradua did not send Azazi to Jail because Azazi did nothing that the writer of this publication tries to hang on him, not even Ibori and Amamiesiegha. I would want to see it also that Azazi rose quickly because he deserved it as his promotion was not sanctioned by Jonathan but Yaradua.
Unavoidably, the object of this publication drives deep into the centre of Jonathan as a person, as the president of the nation and as a candidate at the next elections and it does seem not to baffle me considering when this is happening. The security adviser at the time of these trials is now a contestant. A bomb went off just after he resigned which is a statement in itself because the failure to track the security failings rested with his office before his resignation as this would not have been planned in one day or one week. Could he have had a clue this was going to happen but kept quiet in a case of sour grape to prove a deadly point against his former Boss. Why is it he neither condemned the act or his Northern allies for politicizing the issue to the point of giving the president a one week ultimatum to resign?
For those who are too concerned about the Niger Delta seceding, you need not worry if you are doing what you ought to be doing or is this a measure of your guilt.
Everything I have written takes on the assumption that this report exist. If it does exist I am then left with the assumption it has been doctored. Though I have taken the time and applied the effort to read this publication and write this response, I am of the opinion still that this report does not exist. The onus now on sahara reporters to prove it exist. Publish the report so the public can carry out its own analysis. As for the writer, please let us know your sponsors if you have any.

Re: Cath Daniels - Let's call a Spade a Spade

Cath Daniels, you sounded like a confused educated illiterate in your contribution/analysis. I said educated because you displayed the fundamentals of an educated man but lacked terribly in your understanding of how things work. If Palestinians dig tunnels twenty meters deep covering hundreds of meters with their hands and not machines to transport arms from Egypt in secrecy into Gaza, why would a ship sailing with arms around the world be a problem? Is it not common sense they would do the most unusual of things to disguise their mission or do you think you have better intelligence than Israel? I wonder also how many wrong things you have prayed into existence in your life if you now think your prayer for Jonathan was a mistake. God does not like unstable people. Reconsider your planned prayers please and stop dwelling on the misguided knowledge on why Sarowiwa was killed and who sponsored what. I very much hope you are comfortable with what those who killed Sarowiwa and the other Niger delta citizens have so far offered you. I hope you continue to live with their gifts to you.

GEJ and Ghana.

Goodluch Ebele Jonathan is not a Gnanian. He is from Ogbia in Bayelsa State. By the way, Ijaws in Gnana are no less Nigerian than Nigerians in the United kingdom and the United States. They are all Nigerian migrants in foreign countries with rights in Nigeria like any other Nigerian. The descript 'immigrant' does however not fit with GEJ because he has been all his life in Nigeria. Be careful who you listen to. His enemies or desperate opponents would throw anything at him to stall his presidential bid and a chance for change. He is still the man to beat though as he represents a new civilization of leaders the polls indicate most Nigerians especially from all geographical derivatives want. I have written as an independent and would wish for a fair and level playing ground, not mud slinging politics.
