He said, “We have an officer of the State Consumer Protection Council arrested red-handed, and we are investigating the matter because for now I personally don’t have details about his arrest but he is in our cell”.

Another municipal director was claimed to have been detained in recent months after being accused of receiving bribes as well.

Similarly, the Department of State Services (DSS) apprehended General Idris Bello Dambazau, Chairman of the Kano Consumer Protection Council, this week on suspicion of economic sabotage.
