Petrol problem: Federal High Court orders DSS to release Ifeanyi Ubah


@USAfricaLIVE   @Chido247

Justice Yusuf Halilu of the Nigerian Federal Capital Territory High Court has ruled on an application challenging the continued detention of the Chief Executive Officer of Capital Oil and Gas Industries Ltd, Ifeanyi Ubah, by the Department of State Service, DSS.

The Court ordered the DSS, almost an hour ago, to release Ubah “unconditionally” within 48 hours.

The Nigerian government through its security agency, the DSS, alleged that Ubah committed an action of economic sabotage punishable by death; arguing that he illegally diverted about 84 million litres of Premium Motor Spirit (petrol/fuel), that was kept in his corporation’s tank farm by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.

Ubah’s lawyer is disputing the DSS-NNPC charges.

USAfrica and USAfricaonline.com are monitoring the trial regarding the handling of petroleum products which the DSS has estimated the value at 11 billion Naira. By Chido Nwangwu
