Dasuki has sued the government is challenging the Department of State Security Services (DSS) over its refusal to allow former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki travel to the United Kingdom for medical treatment and putting him under house arrest.

He had previously given an order to the effect that the accused be allowed to go abroad as from November 4 to treat his ailment within three weeks and return to the court on November 26 for his trial in the charges brought against him.

The DSS laid ambush for him at the airport, aborting his trip and have laid siege to his Asokoro, Abuja home since then.

Dasuki then approached the court through his lawyers complaining that nine days after the court permitted him to travel abroad for treatment, the DSS operatives had since November 4 placed him under house arrest 24 hours after the court order was made.

Dasuki, the NSA from 2012 to early this year, is facing criminal charges of unlawful possession of firearms and money laundering.
