PRNigeria, an agency that distributes press releases on behalf of Nigerian security agencies, has disclosed that former NSA under President Jonathan, Sambo Dasuki’s passports and other vital documents have been seized. This is as Dasuki has vowed to challenge the action by seeking legal redress in order to enforce his fundamental human rights.
“Even though there is no more restriction of his movement, Dasuki still feel aggrieved that he was deprived of performing his religious obligation of attending the Eid Prayers, marking the end of Ramadan Fasting,” PRNigeria said.
Operatives of the State Security Service, who placed the immediate past National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, under house arrest since Thursday, have vacated his sealed Abuja residence, releasing their two major detainees.
Mr. Dasuki and his friend, retired Colonel Bello Fadile, were released Friday evening 24 hours after the operatives descended on the property, placing them under arrest.
Mr. Fadile was visiting Mr. Dasuki when the operatives arrived and he was promptly detained with his host.
A source familiar with the matter said the operatives left after taking statement from Mr. Dasuki, asking him questions about the cars found in his compound, some of whom sources said belonged to his wife and guests.
The cars had earlier being towed away early Friday morning, and are yet to be returned, according to a friend of Mr. Dasuki.
