Unbelievable!!!!! Buhari Orders the Arrest of His Close Friend, Mohammed Umar.

President  Muhammadu Buhari ordered the arrest of a key member of the panel investigating the mismanagement of public funds, Mohammed Umar for a serious crime. 

Mohammed Umar
President Muhammadu Buhari's close friend and ally, Mohammed Umar has been arrested on the orders of the president. Umar who is a key member of the panel investigating the mismanagement of public funds meant for the war against Boko Haram was arrested after the president received damning reports that he was involved in alleged money laundering and illegal possession of firearms.
According to the report made by PREMIUM TIMES, Buhari okayed the arrest of Mohammed Umar, after perusing reports alleging that the retired Air Force officer ran a blackmailing and extortion cartel, officials said.
Mr. Umar was arrested last week as operatives of the State Security Service (SSS) raided his Abuja home.
Those familiar with the matter said before moving against the retired officer, the Director General of the SSS, Lawal Daura, met with Mr. Buhari where he tabled reports suggesting that the panel member had been busy using the name of the president and other top officials of the administration to intimidate, extort and blackmail individuals and businesses.
“The president became worried and jittery when he was confronted with the way a man he trusted had been behaving,” a presidency source said. 
“So he ordered that he should be picked up while the allegations against him are thoroughly investigated.”
It was gathered that documents seized from Mr. Umar’s residence during a raid on June 19 included classified documents from the president’s office, details of government transactions from the Central Bank of Nigeria, and details of bank transactions belonging to the Office of the National Security Adviser.
A document containing details of disbursements made to the Nigerian armed forces and security agencies was also recovered during the raid.
Mr. Umar retired as an air commodore in the Nigerian Air Force in January 2014. While in service, he headed the Air Force’s Holding Company as well as the Air Force Properties Limited. He retired into enormous wealth, officials involved in the investigations said.
Currently, he has six companies, including a private jet company with a fleet size of 10 aircraft, officials said.
Security sources also said he is also one of Abuja’s biggest property owners.
“Many top government functionaries live in his houses in Abuja,” a security source said. “He also has properties in Dubai and London.”
According to court documents seen by PREMIUM TIMES, Mr. Umar carried out his recent deals in cash only.
Despite owning a private jet company and multiple real estates across the world, the total amount traced to his bank accounts was only N165 million.
The total value of currencies evacuated from his residence during the raid was at least N300 million.
Security officials believe he received the cash payments – in breach of the money laundering law.
Investigators are also trying to determine whether the cash were proceeds of illicit deals and influence peddling.
Those close to him told PREMIUM TIMES that part of the cash taken from Mr. Umar’s home were payments for services rendered by his private jet company, Easy Jet Integrated Services Limited – from two cargo flights from Nairobi to Houston and Nairobi to Hong Kong.
Investigators said they are working to verify the claims.
Other properties seized from the retired officer’s home during the raid include 13 luxury cars – One Range Rover, two Rolls Royce, two Bentleys, one BMW 7-series, one Mercedes 5550, one Lexus Sports, one Audi R8 and one Porsche Panamera GTs.
As of Monday, Mr. Umar was still held at the State Security Service detention centre in Abuja as security officials continued with investigations into the matter.
The presidency refused to comment for this story saying it was within the scope of the National Security Adviser (NSA).
