Recalling that Nigeria’s former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki was recently released after four years of detention in the custody of the Department of State Services.
Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), had earlier on Tuesday directed the DSS to comply with the court order granting bail to Dasuki and the pro-democracy campaigner and journalist, Omoyele Sowore.
However, the former NSA was first arrested on December 1, 2015 by DSS and arraigned in court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over his involvement in a $2.1bn arms procurement fraud under the administration of ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan. After perfecting his bail granted by the court, Dasuki was released on December 29, 2015 but was immediately re-arrested by operatives of DSS.
After his release in four years, Mr Dasuki has taken a major action as a father of a large family.He made a family reunion with members of his large family and well-wishers at his Asokoro residence in Abuja.
Finally, the old man tastes what freedom looks like in four years!
