The operatives of Department of State Service (DSS) Tuesday morning picked the immediate National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (Rtd) to their office in Abuja.


Sources say the DSS operatives ordered the former NSA out of his Abuja residence without any form of force to the DSS headquarters in the Asokoro District of Abuja.

Dasuki has been under house arrest for a month.


The Federal High Court had granted permission to him to travel twice but the federal government refused to allow him leave the country.

Some officials who worked undered him as well as ex-Minister of Finance, Yuguda have also been arrested by the DSS.

Dasuki denied ever receiving any formal or informal invitation to appear before an Investigative Panel on the Procurement of hardware and ammunition in the armed forces.

While responding to a statement from the Presidency, he said he had never been invited formally or informally to appear before the panel.


“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.

“Even though the committee was to investigate procurement from 2007 to 2015, only my name is always being mentioned even when some of the issues were before I came into the government.

“I leave Nigerians to judge”
