Immediate past National Security Adviser, Mohammed Sambo Dasuki (Col/rtd), was yesterday dragged to court in Abuja by the charged to court by the Department of State Services (DSS) “based on evidence so far obtained, but which relates to possession of fire arms without licence punishable under section 27(i)(a)(i) of the Firearms Act Cap F28 LFN 2004.”

DSS said in a statement signed by Tony Opuiyo,“This is in line with democratic practice and our avowed commitment to the rule of law, in which nobody is deemed to be above the law no matter how highly placed in the society. Accordingly, the general public will be duly informed as the matter progresses.”

News Express reports that DSS had on July 16, carried out a search operation on properties belonging to Dasuki  in Abuja and Sokoto.

“This action was necessitated by credible intelligence which linked him to acts capable of undermining national security. The search operation led to the recovery of large cache of arms and ammunition among other things and for which further investigation was conducted,” Opuiyo said.

He assured that “the Service recommits itself to the fundamental role of providing adequate security for all Nigerians to enable them pursue their legitimate aspirations and businesses.”
