The Directorate of State Security (DSS) has proceeded with the reported plan to stop the former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd.) from seeking medical treatment abroad, as directed by the court.
It was reported that men of the Department of State Security (DSS), for the second time in four months, surrounded his house in order to stop the court-sanctioned health-related trip abroad.
According to reports, Col. Dasuki’s Abuja home was invaded today with some of their personnel guarding the gate with vehicles stationed around the building.
Dasuki’s present ordeal started two days after he resigned his post, then DSS, invaded his home, his son’s house in Abuja, as well as his father’s house in Sokoto, in order to investigate 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 pleaded not guilty.
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.
