Personnel of the State Security Service, SSS, are currently laying siege on the private residence of the immediate past National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, in the Asokoro district of Abuja.

The operatives which were led by one Mohammed, arrived Mr. Dasuki’s residence at about 6:40 pm in four Hilux vans and asked all the soldiers on guard to stay away.

They said they were at the property to see the former NSA for official reasons.

It was learnt that the operation was in connection with the secret probe into how billions of naira allocated to the war against terrorism was  allegedly looted.

Another source in Sokoto said while the Abuja drama was on, another set of SSS operatives were carrying out a similar siege on Mr. Dasuki’s family House, owned by his father, a former Sultan of Sokoto, Ibrahim Dasuki, in Sokoto metropolis.

“They have descended on his father’s compound in Sokoto  and have so far searched the whole house including a large container that has been in the compound for many years,” the source said of the Sokoto Home.

He also said the operatives locked all occupants of the House inside and were not allowing anyone in or out of the building.

Our Abuja source said the SSS operatives were still outside the residence of Mr. Dasuki insisting on seeing him and threatening to force their way in.

“He has refused to let them in and right now they are threatening to force themselves in,” he said.

It is not clear what the former NSA’s offences are. The SSS could not be reached for comments at this time.

Since Marilyn Ogar was removed as spokesperson, the SSS is yet to introduce a new spokesperson to the media.

But a former aide to the retired colonel said his boss was never invited by anyone to answer any questions they may have.

“They just descended on his home, no formal invitation, no arrest warrant,” the aide said. “If they want him to answer question, they should have at least have the courtesy of inviting him. Is it a crime to serve ones country.”

President Buhari had said on May 30, a day after his inauguration, that officials of past administrations were entitled to their full rights and privileges under the constitution, and must not be subjected to any undue harassment and intimidation.

“We must treat fellow citizens with courtesy and respect,” the President said at the time.

Mr. Dasuki was relieved of his appointment as NSA on Monday.

He was appointed NSA by former President Goodluck Jonathan on June 22, 2012 to succeed, Andrew Azazi, who died in an helicopter crash in Bayelsa state.

“The Ansaru (grooms) laid down some rules to the in-laws for the wedding. They ruled that after the wedding, they will take the brides to the forests and live there with them and do not want the brides to go along with any furniture except plates (coolers) and mattresses because anything other than those are not in tandem with their beliefs and convictions.”

Published

on

No boyfriend, no clothes, no problem.

Kendall Jenner bared it all for her latest Instagram post, sunbathing completely in the nude amid her split from Devin Booker.

The supermodel, 26, was pictured laying on her stomach on a sun lounge, wearing nothing but a green 818 Tequila baseball cap.

A string bikini was strewn on the lounge beside her, along with a bottle of water, as she typed on her phone.

The photo dump, which she captioned simply with the blushing emoji, also featured pics and videos of herself horseback riding, enjoying a plate of sushi and the sunset.

“Tell me you and your bf broke up without telling me you and your bf broke up,” one follower commented, referencing her recent breakup from the 25-year-old NBA star.

The couple called it quits last week after two years together. Sources told Page Six they were on different pages about where the relationship was heading.

“While they care for each other, Devin was not going to propose marriage and his priority is his career,” the insider told us. “Kendall’s career also dominates her life.”

Just last month, the notoriously private reality star attended big sis Kourtney Kardashian and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker’s wedding in Italy, with Booker in tow.

They were also recently spotted together at family friend Anastasia “Stassie” Karanikolaou’s birthday in Los Angeles.

The pair first started dating in Spring 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, they didn’t confirm their romance until Valentine’s Day 2021.

Jenner made things Instagram-official at the time when she posted a photo of herself and Booker cuddling on social media.
