Agents of the Department of the State Services (DSS) have re-arrested a former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd). He was re-arrested at the gate of the Kuje Prison, Abuja, as he was about leaving the prison after meeting the bail conditions set for him by a Federal Capital Territory High Court, Abuja.
The DSS held Dasuki shortly after perfecting the third bail granted him by Justice Peter Affem after two other courts had done same.
His lawyer, Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN), the former NSA had met all the bail conditions given by Justice Affem but regretted that the court order was not obeyed by the DSS.
“He was re-arrested by the operatives of the DSS and whisked away to an unknown destination. He met the bail conditions set for him by the judge, but as he was stepping outside the prison, he was arrested,” Raji said
Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court also in Abuja had granted the ex-NSA bail on November 3 in the charges of unlawful possession of firearms, but the bail was on November 4 scuttled by the DSS who laid siege to his Asokoro Residence and placed him under house arrest.
Security agents insisted Dasuki was being investigated on another matter. He would later be arraigned before Justice Yusuf Baba of the Abuja High court on breach of trust and was granted bail but which was also not obeyed by the security operatives.
Dasuki was also moved to another high court of Justice Affem who also admitted him on bail on the grounds that the offence was a bailable one.
Dasuki is facing two sets of criminal charges involving alleged diversion of about N45 billion meant for arms procurement along with others before two judges of the FCT High Court, Abuja.
