Ex-NSA Dasuki narrates his ordeal at the hands of SSS

The embattled former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, has accused the State Security Service of violating the law and harassing him when the case against him was already before a court.

Mr. Dasuki said the Department of State Services, SSS, were determined to re-arrest him without any court warrant or fresh charges.

He said SSS operatives arrived his Abuja residence early Thursday and told his personal security at the gate that they needed to deliver a letter of invitation to Mr. Dasuki, for him to report at the SSS office by 11am same day.

“I told them that if it is just a letter of invite, they can drop it with my domestic staff, but they insisted that I must come out and collect it myself,” Mr. Dasuki said.

“I told them that unless they had a warrant allowing them to arrest me, I do not have to collect the letter from them and I am also not going anywhere without my lawyer,” he said.

Mr. Dasuki said after making his position clear, the SSS operatives threatened his personal security saying they “can force themselves into the House”.

He said his current travail started on Tuesday after Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High court ordered his international passport returned to him to enable him go abroad for medical treatment.

He said he received “intelligence” that an order was given to the operatives to effect his arrest at the airport, as a result, he failed to leave on Wednesday as arranged.

He also said the SSS invited former governor of Adamawa State, Boni Haruna, who stood as his surety in court, and intimidated him.

“They brought Boni Haruna to my house yesterday asking him to invite me to go with them just to clarify something. I told them that since this matter is in court, I am not under obligation to deal with them and advised them to go to court if they have any issue related to the case,” he said.

Mr. Dasuki accused the SSS and the governing All Progressives Congress, APC, of abuse of power.

“We were also in power and if we had abused it the way they are doing now, they would never have been here,” he said. “It is unfortunate.”

The former NSA said the way the SSS was handling the matter was exactly how Boko Haram started.

“Instead of following the legal way of doing things, some people decided to take the laws into their hands and see where we are today,” he said.
