Buhari Reportedly Sanctions the Release of Dasuki on 'One Condition'...See Details

Sambo Dasuki
Emerging reports have it that President Muhammadu Buhari has given the embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki a condition for his freedom. President Muhammadu Buhari is reported to have directed relevant authorities to recover funds said to have been misappropriated by a former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd), and set him free.

This revelation is coming at a time when a Professor of International Studies and author of Buhari’s biography,‘Muhammadu Buhari: The Challenges of Leadership in Nigeria’ had stated that there was no rift between the President and Dasuki, pointing out that they are in-laws.
The ECOWAS court has also ordered the Federal Government to promptly initiate the release of Dasuki as well as issue compensation to him for his extended detention for financial crimes. The government has expressed reluctance is freeing Dasuki just as it responded to similar court injunctions as regards the former military officer's fate.

The Department of State Services, DSS, had in December arrested Dasuki  for allegedly misappropriating $2.1 billion of funds meant for purchase of arms for troops fighting Boko Haram terrorists in the North East.
John N. Paden's work has since its release date revealed hidden details of high-profile power plays in the Buhari administration.

Disclosing this yesterday in Abuja, an aide to Buhari assured that the former NSA will be released once the misappropriated funds under his watch is returned, Vanguard reports

The aide said, “I can tell you that the President is not comfortable with the continued detention of Dasuki despite the offences he allegedly committed against Nigeria and its people.

“The only condition Mr. President has asked Dasuki to fulfil is to refund the huge sum of public funds which were allegedly diverted under his watch as the NSA.

“And I want to tell you that we have the approval of Mr. President to release him (Dasuki) from detention as soon as he brings the money,”
 the official said.
