FG explains Dasuki's continued detention

20 May 2016, 17:14

Abuja - The Federal Government has given reason why former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Mohammed Sambo Dasuki (rtd) was still being kept in the Department of State Services (DSS), Nation reports.

It said Dasuki was being held on the ground of national security, owing to his involvement in the over $2 billion arms deal and for his safety.

The government added that with the quantum of arms and ammunition recovered from Dasuki’s Abuja home, which he allegedly kept illegally, there was the general apprehension that he possesses more, which the state was yet to discover.

It argued that Dasuki’s detention was justified based on the intelligence and security report in the disposal of the nation’s security agencies and that national security supersedes individual’s security.

The defense team of the government according to Homelandnews revealed this when it appeared before the ECOWAS court of Justice in Abuja in a suit challenging the continued incarceration of Col. Dasuki.

The government said with the quantum of arms and ammunition recovered from Dasuki’s home in Abuja, it would be risky letting him off the hook before concluding its investigation.
