After placing him on house arrest for about a month, the State Security Services on Tuesday arrested a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, driving him away from his Abuja residence, people familiar with the matter have told PREMIUM TIMES.
Mr. Dasuki was first arrested by the SSS in July after a prolonged siege on his Abuja home. He was charged to court with illegal possession of arms and money laundering.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court later granted the retired colonel a request for his passport to be released, to enable him receive treatment abroad.
However, the former NSA’s plan to travel was thwarted by the SSS, which, on November 5 laid another siege to his Abuja residence.

A source said he was driven to the SSS headquarters in the Asokoro District of Abuja but that could not be independent confirmed at this time.
