Presidency May Allow Dasuki To Go Home On Bail
It appears that the Federal Government may release the embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, following the fulfilment of his bail conditions.
A source at the presidency told our correspondent that the Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja has sent a letter to the Department of State Service and the Ministry of Justice, indicating that Sambo had fulfilled all his bail conditions.
The source said, “The order from the court has been received by the government ministry and agencies. It seems the man will be released soon.”
“We have confirmation from the DSS that Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd) will be allowed to go on bail if he meets the conditions set for him by the court.” the source said.
The DSS has detained Dasuki since December 29, 2015, for allegedly diverting $2.1 billion arms funds to a political campaign so as to ensure the election of the former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.
This is the second time the court will give order for the release of Sambo on bail but the Federal Government had always declined.
President Buhari, based on Interim Report of Investigative Committee on Arms Procurement, had in 2015 ordered arrest of Dasuki and other indicted persons.
