Department of State Security (DSS) is set to grill former national security adviser (NSA), Col Sambo Dasuk in connection with the probe of ex-Service Chiefs by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

There were speculations on Thursday night that Dasuki has been arrested by operatives of the DSS.

The DSS operatives stormed Dasuki’s Asokoro Quarters compound at about 7.30pm.  He was breaking his Ramadan fast.

It was gathered that the former NSA was caught unawares because there was no official invitation by the DSS or any communication as required of his status.

A highly-placed source said the former NSA was shocked that he was not contacted or invited for interaction on any issue.

A security source said: “I think the siege to Dasuki’s  was part of the first step to probe the immediate past Service chiefs.

The security source added that the movement of the  ex-Service Chiefs might be restricted to the country, pending the conclusion of preliminary investigations into how military budgets were run in the last five years.

The security source confirmed that Dasuki might be investigated on the following issues:

  • all sources of funding of the campaign against Boko Haram;
  • purchase of arms from Russia and its cost;
  • training of the members of the Special Force;
  • why the seized $15m was hauled in cash to South Africa to the embarrassment of the nation;
  • what informed the recruitment of South African mercenaries as fighters in Sambisa Forest, Gwoza and some parts of  Adamawa and Yobe states; and
  • why Nigeria rejected military assistance from the US and the UK against Boko Haram.

As at press time, the fate of the former Service Chiefs was unknown, but a source said “they have been placed on close monitoring”.

They are former Chief of Defence Staff Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, ex-Chief of Army Lt.-Gen. Kenneth Minimah, ex-Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Usman, and ex-Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu.

There was pandemonium in the Jikwoyi axis of the Nyanya-Karshi road in Abuja, on Monday morning as security agents allegedly clashed with hoodlums who were said to have killed a policeman overnight in the area.

Eyewitnesses confirmed that the operation led to a riot by the hoodlums while workers and commuters were on their way to the city centre.

The crisis was said to involve police officers and scavengers popularly known as “Mai bolas.” who set at least one car on fire.

The security operatives were said to have chased them to their hideouts around the area, which were later brought down.

While the crisis lasted, vehicular movement was blocked on both sides of the Nyanya-Karshi dual-carriage road as drivers turned around to avoid getting caught in the crossfire.

A combined team of security forces was said to have successfully dislodged the hoodlums and arrested a number of them before order was restored in the area.
