Written by Taiwo Adediran on November 11, 2015
The Department of State Services has explained that it prevented the former National Security Adviser, retired , from travelling abroad for medical treatment because he refused to appear before a committee set up by the Federal Government to investigate a two billion naira arms transaction by the Goodluck Jonathan administration.
The service stated that Dasuki was invited to shed light on his involvement in the arms procurement processes, but had consistently refused to honor the committee’s invitation.
The DSS, in a statement on Thursday by an official, Tony Opuiyo, accused the former NSA of grandstanding and blackmail. The agency denied blocking Dasuki’s residence in violation of a subsisting court order granting him a relief to travel oversea for medical services, describing the allegation as “unfounded and malicious aimed at tarnishing the good image of the Service.
