Abdulrahman DambazauIgbo youths have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ignore recent calls for the prosecution of the Minister of Interior, Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd.), over the arms procurement scandal.

The youths, who spoke under the aegis of the Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo Students Youth Wing, said the calls for the prosecution of the minister was made by some disgruntled persons to tarnish the image of Mr. Dambazau.

The National President of the group, Comrade Anya S. Anya, who addressed a press conference in Abuja yesterday, said: “The call is enmeshed in dirty politics and aimed at tarnishing the image of a man who has maintained credible records in his military career and academics”.

He argued that in the criminal justice system all over the world, indictments must be based on investigation supported by genuine evidence before persons are brought to trial.

To that effect, he said criminal trials are not supposed to be politicized or initiated on the media.

Anya added that some faceless persons with ulterior motives conjured up mere imaginations to initiate frivolous allegations against Dambazau, describing it as a diversionary plot to unnecessarily overheat polity.

“We wish to remind all and sundry that General Dambazzau was a chief of army staff and not Minister of Defence nor national security adviser to any administration. Therefore, enemies of progress should stop roping him into any corruption charge.

“Ohaneze Ndigbo students shall vehemently oppose any attempt to tarnish the hard earned image and integrity of this noble General who all his life is serving Nigeria as a first class security person…”
