Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, has faulted the arrest of Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser, by the Department of State Services (DSS).
Accusing the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari of seeking “vengeance”, Fayose wondered why the DSS is the one investigating Dasuki.
“Is it the duty of the DSS to investigate fraud? If Dasuki committed fraud as being alleged, why not let the appropriate government agency handle his matter?
Why first torturing him emotionally with the DSS siege on his house?” he asked in a statement issued ion his behalf by Lere Olayinka, his special assistant on public communications and new media.
“My position is that, since the federal government said report of its panel indicted Dasuki, why arresting and detaining him?Why not charge him to court so that he can also accept guilt or defend himself?
“After flagrantly disobeying court orders, whatever that is done or said by the Buhari-led government concerning Sambo Dasuki will appear vindictive and it remains to be seen how a government that refused to obey the court will now charge Dasuki to the same court.”
