DSS picks Ex-NSA Dasuki
The operatives of Department of State Services (DSS) has this morning picked the immediate National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (Rtd) to their office in Abuja.
Recently Dasuki denied ever receiving any formal or informal invitation to appear before an Investigative Panel on the Procurement of hardware and munitions in the armed forces.
While responding to a statement from the Presidency he said he has never been invited formally or informally to appear before the panel.
He added that: “For the record I am proud to serve my nation with the best of intention and ensuring the recovery of more than 22 local government councils from Boko Haram terrorists.
“Because of the pride on how we tackled terrorism and defeated Boko Haram terrorists through our gallant troops and partners in the twilight of the previous administration, that is the reason I have insisted on open and public trial of my stewardship rather than secret trial in the court as being canvassed by my prosecutors.
“I wish Nigerians will go back and reflect on what we did with even little or no supports from some countries, we performed miracles before the emergence of this administration. I even though the committee was to investigate procurement from 2007 to 2015. Yet only my name is always being mentioned even when some of the issues were before I came into the government.
“I leave Nigerian to judge”
Dasuki was said to have been driven him away from his Abuja residence by the operatives amid tight security.
The former embattled NSA was first arrested by the SSS in July after a long siege on his Abuja residence and later charged to court for “illegal possession of arms and money laundering”.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court, Abuja granted the embattled former NSA permission for his passport to be released, to enable him receive medical treatment abroad but was frustrated by the operatives as they continue to lay siege at his residence.
