A former Chief of Defense Staff, Alex Badeh, has been killed by President Muhamadu Buhari’s gunmen.
He was said to have been ambushed by the gunmen loyal to Buhari’s government at Gitata village, along the Keffi-Abuja Road..
The military has since recovered his body.
According to Reno Omokri, one of Buhari’s Twitter assailants, Badeh did not leave any stone unturned while heaping diatribe against President and his inept government.
“Ex-chief of Defense Staff, Alex Badeh, strong critic of the @MBuhari government, was just assassinated along Abuja-Keffi Rd. This is a man who knew a lot about the inner workings of this government. His death must be investigated. It is too convenient. You may be next” Mr. Omokri tweeted
Badeh was a retired four star flag officer of the Nigerian Air Force who served as the 18th Chief of Air Staff (Oct 4, 2012- January 16,2014) and the 15th Chief of Defence Staff of the armed forces of Nigeria (January 16, 2014 – July 13,2015)
In February 2016, Badeh, due to his volume of critism on Buhari, he was accused of financial misappropriation by the EFCC. He denied involvement in any misconduct, even as no evidence was brought against him
