The crisis currently rocking the arms scandal, since the arms committee made efforts to submit its report, has taken another twist, as the Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Bello Dambazzau, has made persistent efforts to be excluded in the arms scandal report, when inside sources in the committee had confirmed that the Minister was also involved in the scandal.
In order to save his neck, and use a presidential fiat to exclude him from the report, Dambazzau, we gathered, had approached the President, seeking to be excluded from the report.
Our reliable Presidency source revealed that Dambazzau met the President in the Villa where he told him why his name can’t be listed among those who diverted the arms fund and should not appear before any committee. The President refused to yield, which led to a serious shouting match between the duo
He warned against the decision as he would spill the entire beans to the whole world if his name and that of his accomplices were not removed. He reminded the President that part of the money used in sponsoring his election was from the arms deal and will tell the world all he knows about the election and how it was funded. Mr Buhari was terrified and just walked out on him, added the source.
