Documents and an audio CD made available to Trail Reporters News revealed that, a high powered petition dated 10th January, 2017 has been forwarded to President Muhammadu Buhari by a whistle blower, Engr. Friday Ani, requesting to be placed under tight security in order not to be assassinated by a Deputy Inspector-General of Police in Charge of Force Criminal Investigation & Intelligence Department, DIG Hycent M. Dagala, who allegedly doctored a Police Report of ACP Makuliso Umaro which indicted Officials of National Oil Spill Detection & Response Agency (NOSDRA) and Officials of Sterling Oil Exploration & Energy Production Company (SEEPCO) for fraud of over N7 billion and replaced it with a new one exonerating them without carrying out fresh investigation and granting interview between suspects/complainants before superior officers.
Trail Reporters gathered that, an audio CD which was made available to our correspondent seriously indicted DIG Hycent M. Dagala for gross misconduct and corruption. Our ever reliable sources within the Presidential Villa confirmed to our Reporters on telephone, that the petition alongside the audio CD which indicted DIG Hycent M. Dagala has been officially received by the President for necessary action.
The petitioner in his petition, appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately place him under tight security to prevent intimidation, arrest and possible assassination pending a discreet investigation and conclusion of the case by the Presidency, and also requested that Presidency summons ACP Makuliso Umaro to present a copy of his Police Report to the Presidency for confirmation.
As at the time of going to the Press, efforts to contact the Presidential Spokesman, Femi Adesina to know the next line of action to be taken by the Presidency over weighty allegations of misconduct and corruption levied against DIG Hycent M. Dagala, did not yield positive result as calls placed to his telephone line were unanswered.
