Abuja - The State Security Service on Tuesday rearrested a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, reports Premium Times.
Before his arrest on Tuesday, Dasuki had been placed under house arrest for about a month.
The SSS operatives ordered Dasuki out of his residence and drove him away amidst tight security cover.
He was driven to the SSS headquarters in the Asokoro District of Abuja.

Dasuki was first arrested by the SSS in July after a prolonged siege on his Abuja home and later charged to court with illegal possession of arms and money laundering.

President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered the arrest of Dasuki and others involved in the deal.
