Senate threatens NIMASA DG with arrest over maritime security probe


Dr. Dakuku Peterside

The Senate has threatened to compel the Director-General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Dakuku Peterside, via a warrant, to appear before it to answer questions on his agency’s involvement in the operation of alleged illegal security services in the nation’s waterways.

The Senate Joint Committee on Navy, Marine Transport and Finance yesterday described the Dakuku’s failure to honour its invitation as disrespectful.

Though the NIMASA DG was represented at the investigative hearing by the Principal Legal Officer of the organisation, Haruna Argungu, the committee however refused to honour him, walking him out in the presence of the Minister of State for Transportation, Senator Gbemisola Saraki.
