Concern raised as Dasuki again denied freedom

30 December 2015, 20:10

Abuja - Ahmed Raji, the counsel to former National Security Adviser (NSA),Col Sambo Dasuki, has appealed to security agents and the federal government to respect court order and allow Dasuki to enjoy the bail granted him by the courts.

Despite securing bail in his trial against alleged misappropriation of funds meant to buy equipment to boost the fight against Boko Haram, operatives of the Department of State Security Service (DSS) have refused to free him.

In the latest such episode, the third such incident, the operatives arrested Dasuki on Wednesday after Justice Peter Affem of an Abuja high court granted him bail.

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 SSS who instead of obeying court order laid siege on his Asokoro Residence and placed him under house arrest.

The claim of the security agents was that Dasuki was being investigated on another matter. He was later arraigned before justice Yusuf Baba of the Abuja High court on breach of trust an was granted bail but which was also refused to be obeyed by the security operatives.

Raji said such actions by the DSS were an affront to the rule of law.
