BREAKING: Nigerian Ex-Minister Arrested
Information reaching Naija News House says that Nigerian Ex-Minister Arrested
A former minister of interior, General Adulrahman Dambazau has been arrested by the Department of State Security, DSS over ‘Economic Sabotage’.
Dambazzau, who is currently the Kano State Chairman of the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) was picked up by the operatives over the unilateral closure of seven petroleum filling stations without following due process.
All efforts to make Gen. Dambazau open the filling stations fell in deaf ears as the move was an ‘illegal assignment’ which was beyond the powers of his office.
Citing section 48 of the Nigerian Constitution which clearly states that, any government ministry, department or agency exercising any power or function or taking any action which may have direct impact on midstream or downstream petroleum operations shall consult with the authority.
This according to the section is prior to issuing any regulations, guidelines, enforcement order or directives, which a security source emphasized that Dambazzau disregarded.
