The Olowu of Kuta, Oba Adekunle Makama, has described the attempt by some groups to tarnish the image of the former Chief of Army Staff and Nigeria Ambassador to the Benin Republic, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai as an effort in futility.

Speaking at a press conference in Kuta on Tuesday over the recent publication against the former COAS, Olowu revealed that Buratai is of unimpeachable character worthy of emulation.

Oba Makam said he was ready to support any Nigerian that is patriotic and has shown enough commitment to the unity of Nigeria like Buratai.

The monarch added that it was the timely rebuttal of the ICPC that thwarted the shenanigans of those who wanted to ridicule Buratai because of politics.

"It was the timely intervention of the ICPC that the money was found with the military contractor and not Buratai’s residence that saved the day, otherwise some would have believed the hatchet job by the online portal.

“For instance, if you found money meant for a contract from one of Julius Berger’s directors, does it mean the money belongs to President Muhammadu Buhari who gave them the contract?

“Buratai has no house in Wuse 2 where all the items recovered by the ICPC were found. It’s purely an attempt by politicians to tarnish his image. Not many people were comfortable with his presence at the Eagle Square recently during the All Progressives Congress Primary in Abuja.

“He has also been named as part of the APC campaign council for the Osun State governorship election in July. I think you can see where the attack is coming from.

”Olowu who said Buratai has transformed the Nigeria mission in Cotonou said pulling him down purely because of politics is condescending."
