General Idris Dambazau Has Been Arrested By The DSS
The Department of State Services has detained General Idris Bello Dambazau (Rtd. ), the Managing Director of Kano state’s Consumer Protection Council (KCPC), on charges of economic sabotage.
Touchaheart Nigeria reports that Dambazau was detained after blocking down seven fueling stations in the state capital “unilaterally and unconstitutionally.” Today, December 6, he is likely to be arraigned in court.
According to a top official with the DSS’s Kano state command, General Idris Dambazau was apprehended on Sunday, December 5, after futile attempts to open the filling stations.
The official said;
“It happened yesterday. He went and seal seven filling stations under the guise of being the head of Consumer Protection Council and the Constitution is against that act.”
The source added that when Dambazau was contacted, it was gathered that he did not inform the DPR. He has also been accused of sealing shops in several markets in the metropolis.
“No agency, organisation or ministry can seal a filling station except with the directives from the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) and he also did not get directives from security agencies.
“We reached out to him but he ignored our request. He was arrested this morning and all the filling stations have been unsealed.
“We are charging him with the offense of the economic sabotage in with the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“His act is an act of economic sabotage and he will be charged to court tomorrow (Monday).”
