Alex Badeh assassinated: Nigerians react
Nigerians have reacted to the assassination of Alex Badeh, who was a Chief of Defence Staff, and shot dead while returning from his farm along Abuja-Keffi Road.
Badeh was assassinated along Abuja-Keffi road this evening in what seems to be a marked execution.
A lot of Nigerians have since reacted to the unfortunate incident, with many expressing shock at the murder of the 4 star general.
Badeh has been facing trial since 2016 at the Federal High Court, Abuja, for alleged N3.97billion fraud brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Ever since he was granted bail to the tune of N2billion on March 10, Badeh had been regular in court to face his trial.
He was expected to open his defence on the next adjourned dates of January 16 and 17, following the dismissal of his application for ‘no case submission’.
See how Nigerians reacted the the assassination of former Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh below;
Bukola Saraki – Nigeria has suffered another great loss with the passing of former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh. My heartfelt prayers go to his family and our Armed Forces at this tragic time. May the Almighty grant him eternal rest. Amin.
@Rouvafe – If Alex Badeh, a former Chief of defense staff and 4-star General can be easily ambushed and killed just like that, then I don’t even know again. Let’s just vote God in the 2019 elections.
@more2thiz – Even pops that was a 2 Star General, we still have Military personnel in all our houses. How come they were able to shoot Alex Badeh, a 4 star General?
@deezer234 – Alex badeh allegedly deprived the Nigerian Military of weapons and kept the money for himself…he is now dead from the insecurity he helped in establishing!
Corruption affects everyone.. including those engaging in it as he allegedly did.
Reno Omokri – 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 #RenosDarts
@RightLieutenant – Nigeria is on a low. A 4-star General killed like a chicken, just like that. That means the rest of us are just on a queue.
May Alex Badeh’s soul rest in peace.
@Osi_Suave – This Alex Badeh thing is shocking
As former CDS he is entitled to armed guards until he dies.
So how did this happen?
RIP and my condolences to his family
@seunakioye – How can a former Chief of Defence Staff be killed like a common criminal on our highway. What is the hope of ordinary Nigerians then? OMG, this is unbelievable. RIP Air Chief Marshall Alex Badeh. You didn’t deserve a death like this
@Malan_Baffa – If you want to be pissed about Alex Badeh’s killing, you must show us where you called for justice in the case of General Alkali. Because Nigerian Soldier na Nigerian Soldier or we know you are a selective hypocrite forming activist shouting for rule of law.
