Abuja - Former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd) has protested his detention for alleged $15billion arms deals facilitated by the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA).
He said the Federal Government should allow his trial to commence according to Nation.
Dasuki was said to have told his associates that he is not disposed to a secret trial.
He insisted that based on service rules in a security system, he only obeyed the directive of the President and Commander-in-Chief, former President Goodluck Jonathan.
The ex-NSA told his associates: “I am ready for trial because they have destroyed my family’s name and my professional integrity, especially how we successfully fought Boko Haram and recovered major towns and cities, not villages. They should let my trial start in earnest to enable Nigerians know the truth from falsehood.
In a report by News24 few days ago, Dasuki's loyalists threatened to release videos of personalities who benefited from the controversial $2.1 billion arms deal.
The loyalists allegedly said the that release of the video is necessary to help properly situate facts regarding the deal, stressing that some prominent Nigerians who collected huge sums from the arms money were now publicly denying doing so and even working surreptitiously for the continued incarceration of Dasuki.
