The army court martial which found the former general officer commanding (GOC) guilty of all the five-count charge against him on Monday night, also ordered the return of various sums of money including $6,600 he was found with to the Nigerian army. 

His sentence which is subject to approval by the army council also include a reduction of his rank to brigadier general with two years seniority on count three and severe reprimand on count four. 

Otiti has been standing trial since 2019 after some soldiers he sent to transport some cash to Kaduna by road from where it would be taken to Abuja, plotted to steal the money during a stop in Kaduna and subsequently deserted the army.
