Operatives of Nigeria’s Secret Police, also known as the Department of Security Services (DSS) is at the time of reporting this, attempting to forcibly arrest former National Security Adviser and retired army colonel, Sambo Dasuki.
“He hasn’t been arrested,” a reliable source close to Dasuki confirms to The Trent at 12 noon, Friday, July 17, 2015.
Since, Thursday, July 16, 2015, operatives of the DSS have been laying siege on the home of Dasuki in Asokoro, Abuja and that of his father, Ahmed Dasuki, the late former Sultan of Sokoto on the orders of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Trent learnt that Dasuki has refused to surrender to the operatives because he believes that the DSS has no legal basis for its action against him. The DSS, however, made away with his valuables, documents, and his car in the raid.
Our source, who prefers to remain anonymous tells us, “A search was conducted in Dasuki’s house. He many not be able to attend Eid Fitr Islamic Prayers after Ramadan Fasting as his vehicles have been moved.”
Buhari sacked Dasuki as National Security Advisor (NSA) on Tuesday, July 14, 2015.
