BREAKING: DSS Arrests Dasuki, Ex National Security Adviser.
After three weeks of laying siege on his Abuja residence, the Department of State Services (DSS) has finally arrested the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
Dasuki was arrested Tuesday and is currently being grilled at the DSS headquarters in Abuja.
Report have it that Dasuki, who is alleged to have stolen about $2.1 billion through fictitious contracts, followed the security agents voluntarily.
Prior to his arrest, a federal high court in Abuja granted him leave to travel abroad for medical treatment, but the state police refused to comply with the order of the court.
Despite the subsisting order, the DSS asked the same court, presided over by Adeniyi Ademola, to revoke the bail it granted Dasuki on September 1 on the grounds that the accused person was being investigated for corruption and other criminal matters.
Dasuki has denied the allegations of corruption against him, saying that former President Goodluck Jonathan approved all the contracts that were awarded by his office.
He has also described his trial by the federal government as a “witch hunt”, maintaining that he is innocent of all the charges.
The hearing of the application on “bail revocation” is expected to come up on Thursday.
