The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released pictures of R.A. Ojuawo, a serving officer of the Nigerian air force.

Ojuawo is undergoing investigation for his alleged involvement in the controversial $2.1bn arms purchase scandal.

In a message posted on social media, the anti-graft agency said the long arm of the law will catch up with anyone involved in crime, no matter how highly placed.

“Find below, the picture of Air Vice Marshal Ojuawo, a serving officer of the Nigerian Airforce, who is being prosecuted by the EFCC at the FCT High Court, Apo Abuja for fraud. He came to court in his full Airforce regalia. Indeed, with EFCC, nobody is above the law. We shall serve you details later,” the message read.

Ojuawo was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, in February.

He was on his way to a meeting of the United States Africa Command in Germany.

The officer was supposed to deliver the air force keynote address at the event.

    I have being praying for this day for long and i thank God that i witness it. They day i was praying for is the day when nobody will be above the law.
    Nigeria is a corrupt country and it stinks of corruption.
    I remember vividly when i was working at Tincan Island Port in the 70s. The level of corruption i witnessed then was catastrophic but i did not kniw that it was a child play comoare with current corruption.
    Money meant to buy arms and ammunitions was shared between few Nigerians and our boys were sent to war to be slaughtered like rams by Boko Harram.
    As a matter of fact, these people should be made to face firing squad for overtly and covertly killed our boys by their acts and omissions to act.
    I don’t care whether people involved were Yoruba,Hausa Itsekiri, Igbo or Ebira. We should put sentiments apart and face reality in Nigeria.
    Enough is enough.

      Do you think there is no more corruption at the port and other MDAs?

        There is corruption even in the EFCC. I bet you some EFCC people if not all share some of the discovered loot with some the culprits and let them go. At the best they are appreheating people who simply looted money on bogus invoices or no invoices at all.

    Your comment..The efcc appears to be doing a good job, at least to start with. No one doubts the enormosity of corruption in Nigeria. The efcc is the only outstanding body still at it. But I read that the so called Buhari’s kitchen cabinet is at it again…trying to replace the head.. Mr. Magu with another, making Nigeria a laughing stalk. Buhari you must act now

    This EFCC love to arrange people and nothing happens afterwards. Nobody has actually faced the law. They always get off lightly
