Contrary to in­sinuations that President Mu­hammadu Bu­hari ordered the arrest of former National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Da­suki because he was the Army officer who led sol­diers to arrest him (Bu­hari) on the day he was overthrown as military Head of State in August 1985, facts emerging from the security circle indi­cate that the retired Army Colonel is wanted in con­nection with multi-billion dollar funds domiciled in his office as NSA.


Between Thursday eve­ning and 6pm yesterday (Friday), Department of State Security Service (DSS) operatives had been searching for Dasuki in his Abuja and Sokoto homes. Though, he was believed to be in his Abuja home. He eventually allowed the DSS detectives to enter his house to execute a search warrant. At the end of the search, it was learnt that items recovered from the house included $40,000, three automatic rifles and his travel documents. The operatives thereafter va­cated the house.

It was however gathered that all funds budgeted for the war against Boko Ha­ram terror and other securi­ty issues were all domiciled in the office of Dasuki as NSA. There are allegations that some of the huge funds were diverted for some ex­traneous purposes rather than the prosecution of the war against terror.

It was also learnt that defence contracts, includ­ing purchase of arms and ammunition that used to be under the Ministry of Defence, were taken over by Dasuki. He dominated the environment, so much so that the Ministry of De­fence was no longer in the know about these transac­tions as they were fully taken over by the office of the NSA.

With huge funds under his control, Service Chiefs and other security chiefs also began reporting to Da­suki, it is alleged.

Saturday Sun further gathered that the disburse­ment of over $3 billion USD already expended in the fight against Boko Ha­ram, was presided over by Dasuki. At a point in time, the funds were also alleg­edly used to finance the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) then especial­ly during the electioneering campaign. Inside sources also say that the immediate past Service Chiefs ought to be quizzed because they also were parties to the disbursement of the terror funds.

It was further gathered that under Dasuki, Min­istry of Defence became toothless and a mere feath­erweight, a development that had never happened before in the nation’s his­tory.

At a point, former Minis­ter of Defence, Gen. Aliyu Gusau became disgruntled and wanted to go because Dasuki took over some of his duties. The former Min­ister felt he was just warm­ing seat. Another reliable security source added that the invasion of Dasuki’s residence by DSS opera­tives has nothing to do with whether he led a team of soldiers to arrest Buhari on Sallah Day some years ago.

“Some people have been trying to portray Buhari as being unforgiving, venge­ful, and that he never for­gets. This is not true and has no connection with the effort to arrest the former ex-NSA. DDS invasion of Dasuki’s house has nothing to do with Buhari. Simply put, his travails with the DSS has to do with bil­lions of terror funds he dis­bursed as NSA”, the source stressed.

  1. I am happy that Buhari have been acknowledged about the terror funds that was given to panacea and pacific peacekeeping in Nigeria. The funds have been disburse to illegal entities and unscrupulous people. And there is no need for Dasuki’s arrest, even if he travel across the world. As they, alleged that UPP ( because i think not PDP ) gangster took the money during the international defend and election campaigns. The looted money is also a point of concerns for this dubious menace of embezzlement.

  2. Why did they waited till eve of Sallah to arrest Col Dasuki, exactly the same Sallah eve General Buhari was arrested by Major Dasuki & 3 other Major Generals,after IBB overthrown General Buhari,this arrest of Col Dasuki is a plan deal & wintch-hurt by Buhari,which is undemocratic,unconstitutional & illegal,the Personality of NSA or Ex-NSA deserves an invitation from DSS,SSS or any Security Agency in Nigeria,PMB the Detactor should know that we are in Democratic/Civilian Govt not Military/Anachy Govt. I am not against DSS or SSS arrest to Col Dasuki but what I am against is the way they allowed PMB to used them & Col Dasuki deserves invitation to appear b4 the DSS,it is so emberassing to Nigeria Govt,DSS,SSS & Col Dasuki. Oh GOD pls help Nigerians!
