SSS operatives invade former NSA’s Abuja home

The security agents were said to have arrived Dasuki’s home at about 6:40 pm on Thursday, July 16, 2015.

Former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki

Officials of the State Security Service (SSS) have invaded the private residence of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, in Asokoro, Abuja.

A separate team of SSS officials also reportedly visited Dasuki’s family home in Sokoto State.

“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,” a source told Premium Times.

Dasuki is however said to have refused initially refused the security officials entry into his Abuja home leading them to threaten force.

“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,” another source close to Dasuki said.

No information has been given as to why Dasuki’s homes are being besieged.

Many citizens have however made reference to the fact that Dasuki was responsible for arresting President Muhammadu Buhari on Sallah eve in 1985.

The siege on Dasuki’s home also took place on the eve of the July 17, 2015, Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.
