After more than 24 hours of siege, the Federal Government has ordered the withdrawal of operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) from the Abuja home of the immediate past National Security Adviser, retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki.
Channels TV however reports that before the DSS left his residence, they seized his International Passports and other vital documents.
Although there is no more restriction of his movement, Colonel Dasuki (Rtd) still feels aggrieved that he was deprived of the opportunity to perform his religious obligation of attending the Eid Prayers, marking the end of Ramadan Fasting.
Retired Colonel Dasuki has vowed to challenge the action by seeking legal redress in order to enforce his fundamental human rights.
Meanwhile, it has been gathered that legal and diplomatic processes initiated by the former National Security Adviser have ensured that cash seized by the South African government during the cash for arms saga in 2014 have been fully recovered by Nigeria.
It would be recalled that President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration was forced to resort to the alternative market to obtain arms when western powers blocked every access to the formal arms market but the cash were seized both at the airport and in the bank.
The PDP, through its National Publicity Secretary, Olisah Metuh, had earlier on Friday condemned the siege on the former NSA’s residence. Mr Metuh said that it was undemocratic and unconstitutional.
