DSS operatives, trucks on standby at ex-NSA's Abuja home

The panel alleged that Dasuki mismanaged huge defense budget running into over N600 billion.

Former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki

The Department of State Security Service (DSS) has re-established its heavy presence at the Abuja home to embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, following his fresh arrest on Tuesday.

President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered Dasuki's arrest over the alleged misappropriated billions of dollars meant for procurement of arms and ammunitions for the Nigerian military.

According to Vanguard, the ex-NSA’s house on 13 John Khadiya Street in Abuja, as at tonight, Wednesday, November 18, was surrounded by the operatives of the DSS. The agency reinforced its presence since Tuesday evening, it was learnt.

It was gathered that operational trucks of the security agency was seen stationed at strategic spots of Dasuki's highbrow neighbourhood and inside his expansive property.

It was however not clear if the former security chief is inside the building. But reports said he has been placed under house arrest following the alarming findings of the panel, which probed the arms procurement contracts reportedly awarded by Dasuki.
