Sambo Dasuki Arrest: Buhari Using Corruption Fight To Seek Vengeance – Fayose

Sambo Dasuki

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has described Tuesday’s arrest of the immediate-past National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd) by men of the Department of State Services (DSS), as continuation of President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime of vengeance.

According to Fayose, “disobeying court order and later arresting and detaining the same person the court ordered to be allowed to travel abroad for medicare is the peak of dictatorship.”

The governor reiterated his support for the fight against corruption, but maintained that it must be done within the ambit of the law and must not be used to seek vengeance.

He declared support for Dasuki’s demand for an open trial as against the federal government’s demand for a secret trial.

“After flagrantly disobeying court orders, whatever that is done or said by the Buhari-led government concerning Sambo Dasuki will appear vindictive and it remains to be seen how a government that refused to obey the court will now charge Dasuki to the same court,” Fayose said in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.

“Again, is it the duty of the DSS to investigate fraud? If Dasuki committed fraud as being alleged, why not let the appropriate government agency handle his matter? Why first torturing him emotionally with the DSS siege on his house?

“My position is that, since the federal government said report of its panel indicted Dasuki, why arresting and detaining him? Why not charge him to court so that he can also accept guilt or defend himself?” Fayose queried.


  1. When a foolish & senseless governor like Fayose talk the wise men wonders who & who voted him there, there is no doubt in my spirit that a day comes when DSS ‘ll visit him just like Dasuki, at least Dasuki never believed that no one ‘ll be bold enough to point accusing fingers at him. I suggest that all Dasuki’s properties be sized & banks account be frozen.

    • And Who is the wiseman…you? You are a big fool and I sincerely think a hard substance have been injected into your brain that it is completely unable to process any form of logic and reasoning. Fayose is a voice of democracy and a man of his people. He speaks truth to light regardless of whose ox is gored. If a young man like yoursef can not ask yourself the simple question of why a former NSA could be so sort after by a modern day first class tyrant, then I have nothing more to say to you.

  2. This unfortunate governor your time is coming. U thinks after looting you will claim to be sick. Then fly out to rest abi. Dasuki case just started.
