Alex Badeh’s wife, sons remain on DSS watch list, may miss burial
19 December 2018 National
Reports reaching our news desk say the family of the late Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh (retd.), may miss his burial as they remain on the watch list of the department of state services and the Nigeria Immigration Service.
Badeh’s widow, Mary Iya Badeh, and his two sons, Alex (jnr) and Kam have been in the United States since 2016 following his prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
A family friend of the Badehs told our correspondent that it was unlikely that they would attend his funeral.
Recall that a prosecution witness, Abubakar Madaki, had told a federal high court sitting in Maitama that Badeh’s wife and two of his children were being investigated for offences with which the ex-Chief of Air Staff was charged.
