 Why It’s  Dangerous To Release Dasuki Now – FG

dasuki-efcc2 The Federal Government has explained why former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Mohammed Sambo Dasuki (rtd) was still being held by the Department of State Services (DSS).

It said Dasuki was being held on the ground of national security, owing to his involvement in the over $2 billion arms deal and for his safety.

The government added that with the quantum of arms and ammunition recovered from Dasuki’s Abuja home, which he allegedly kept illegally, there was the general apprehension that he possesses more, which the state was yet to discover.

It argued that Dasuki’s detention was justified based on the intelligence and security report in the disposal of the nation’s security agencies and that national security supersedes individual’s security.

These formed the submission of the lawyer to the government, T. D. Kabiru, while arguing the defendant’s case in the suit filed by Dasuki, before the Community Court of Justice of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Abuja, challenging his continued detention.
