Abuja - Embattled former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki has denied arresting President Muhammadu Buhari, shortly after he was overthrown as a Military Head of State in August 1985.
He also said he had supported Buhari’s presidential aspiration in 2003, 2007 and 2011.
He said he knelt down in 2011 for the former National Chairman of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Bisi Akande, to make Buhari a joint candidate of the ACN and the defunct Congress of Peoples Congress (CPC).

Col. Dasuki made the clarifications in an interview during an encounter with a blogger and the Publisher of the Economic Confidential, Yushau Shuaib.
The piece is titled: “Sambo Dasuki: An Encounter with the spymaster”.
He spoke against the backdrop of insinuations that his house arrest might have to do with a retaliation of a similar maltreatment against Buhari in 1985.
