ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The Department of Security Services is said to have arrested former Governor of Adamawa State, Mr. Boni Haruna, moments after he signed surety that fulfilled the court requirements permitting the immediate past National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd), to seek medical attention abroad.
A very reliable source claimed that Haruna was immediately invited by DSS for questioning, after finalising the processes for the release of Dasuki’s travelling documents today (Tuesday).
Sundiata Post could however not ascertain if the two-time governor of the North Eastern state has been released after the interrogation or detained under DSS custody.
“We learnt Boni Haruna, a two terms governor of Adamawa State and former Minister of Youths was ‘invited’ by security service after signing as surety for ex-NSA Sambo Dasuki at the court today.
“He was interrogated on the reason for signing in as surety to Dasuki. I won’t know if he is released now,” the source said.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court (FHC) sitting in Abuja, had earlier on Tuesday, granted the application of the ex-NSA to seek medical check up abroad.
Delivering ruling on the application filed by the defendant, Justice Ademola against opposition from the Federal Government Counsel, granted the former NSA a period of three weeks within which to take care of his health abroad .
However, the trial judge who had earlier granted bail to Dasuki on self-recognition varied the bail condition which now include a surety ,who will write an undertaking to produce the accused person on the next adjourned date.
Justice Ademola also said that the surety should be ready to take the position of the accused in case the former NSA refuses to appear to answer charges proffered against him .
In the alternative Justice Ademola ordered any of the senior counsel to the accused person to sign an undertaking to take his place, before the international passport of the accused is released, the demand, which was fulfilled by Haruna.
