ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The Department of State Security (DSS), has followed up with the reported plan to stop immediate past National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) from seeking medical treatment abroad as directed by the court, as it invaded his Abuja home in the early hours of Thursday.
There had been report about the uncertainty trailing Dasuki’s planned medical trip, following a tip-off about the move by the DSS to arrest him at the airport Wednesday night.
This was however confirmed early this morning that the operatives of DSS for the second time in four months surrounded his house in order to scuttle the court-sanctioned health-related travel.
“They invaded his Abuja home early hours of this morning with some of their personnel guiding the gate and as well as stationing their vehicles there”, a source said.
Investigations further revealed that the security agents besieged the Abuja Air Port Wednesday night in an anticipatory move to either arrest the ex-NSA or prevent him from travelling.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”70560″]
“The laid siege at the airport last night, they are now in his house this morning again,” the source added.
Dasuki’s present ordeal started two days after he resigned his post as the NSA, when DSS invaded his home, his son’s house in Abuja, and as well as his father’s house in Sokoto, under the excuse of investigating him for treason.
The treason allegation was however changed to criminal possession of firearms during his arraignment on August 24, 2015.
However, the prosecuting counsel and DSS once again amended the case to include money laundering charges and request for secret trial, which the former NSA has objected to and as well as pleaded not guilty to the charges.
But in a counter application on October 26, Dasuki asked the court for the release of his travel passport to enable him attend to his personal health issues abroad, which was subsequently granted by the Justice Adeniyi Ademola presided Federal High Court (FHC), Abuja.
