July 19, 2015 – DSS Recovers 5 Armoured Vehicles, Bullets Proof Cars From Dasuki’s Asokoro Abuja Mansion, Calls Ex-NSA A Criminal

The Department of States Security officials have denied the allegations of witch hunting brought against them over their recent visit to former NSA Sambo Dasuki’s home in Abuja.

DSS released an official press statement on this late last night.

The statement reads:

On 16th July, 2015, about 1650 hours, based on credible intelligence linking the imme­diate past NSA, Mohammed Sambo DASUKI (Col Rtd) with alleged plans to com­mit treasonable felony against the Nigerian State, operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) conducted a search on the properties be­longing to the former NSA, Mohammed Sambo DASU­KI (Col Rtd). The properties are on Nos. 13, John Khadya Street, Nos. 46, Nelson Man­dela Street, both at Asokoro, Abuja, and Nos. 3 Sabon Birni Road, Gwiwa Area, Sokoto, Sokoto State.

The search operations was planned to be simultaneously conducted, but DASUKI, refused the operatives entry into his main residence lo­cated at No. 13 John Khadya Street, Asokoro, despite be­ing presented with a genuine and duly signed search war­rant. Consequently, what was to last not more than two (2) hours, lasted more than ten (10) hours, up till the early hours of 17th July, 2015.

Indeed if not for the sense of maturity and professional­ism of the officers and men assigned this task and the very good understanding and timely intervention of the new Chief of Army Staff, Tsukur Y. Buratai (Maj Gen), there would have been a clash be­tween the Army operatives guarding the house and Ser­vice operatives, as Sambo di­rected the soldiers on duty not to allow any movement into his house, despite the subsist­ing court order. Sambo there­after raised a false alarm to the military authorities to come to his aid as he failed to correctly tell the military that his proper­ty was about to be legitimately searched.

Gentlemen, please recall that Sambo retired from the Army as a Colonel, and there­fore not entitled to have mili­tary guards, if not for the fact he was NSA. Even as NSA, such guards should have been withdrawn after his removal as NSA since he would not have been entitled.

The search was thoroughly conducted, and several items recovered, among which were some incriminating items. These include seven (7) high caliber rifles, (high assault weapons), several magazines and military related gears.

The team also recovered twelve (12) new vehicles, out of which five (5) were bullet proofs. These vehicles which are all exotic vehicles were retrieved from SAMBO’s residence having failed to pro­duce evidence of ownership. For instance, what could he be doing with five (5) bullet proof cars as a retired NSA?. These cars which from all available evidence were purchased with tax payers money, were being kept for possible sinister enter­prise.

The Service would want to state categorically that this search operation is not a witch hunt. The Service decided to move at this time in line with current Management resolve to be proactive and pre-empt individuals with penchant for impunity and lawlessness from putting back the nation to the dark days. The Service is also aware that the lethal arms and the vehicles recovered were not reflected in Sambo’s handover notes or what could a former NSA be doing with destructive weapons and bul­let proof cars which put to­gether could disrupt the peace of any city in Nigeria for a while.

On the search of his three (3) properties, including the Sokoto residence, the Service is aware that in his capacity and given his antecedents, he might decide to use any of his residences for such diabolical plans, rather than his main residence.

Gentlemen of the press, the Service Management would want to assure members of the public that it would not trample on the freedom of individuals or groups as guar­anteed by the Nigerian Con­stitution and emphasized by the current administration’s position on transparency, and probity underlined by justice and equity for all Nigerians. This is the driving force for all DSS operations. However, the Service would not hesitate to go after any person or group of persons, no matter how highly placed once such indi­vidual (s) breach or attempt to breach the laws of the Federa­tion. The days for impunity and indecisiveness in the face of unpatriotic acts by individu­als operating against the State are over.

The Service hereby appeal to all Nigerians to be law abid­ing and partner with it in en­suring a peaceful and secured nation. In the same vein, those that are bent on breaking the rules governing our peaceful co-existence due to either the huge ill gotten wealth they have acquired or imaginary hold they think they have on our nation’s survival, are be­ing warned to rethink. The DSS will use all constitutional means as defined by its man­date to deal decisively with such unpatriotic individuals.

The Management want to seize this opportunity to appreciate Nigerians for the tremendous acts of goodwill that is being extended to the new dispensation. The Man­agement also wish to assure Nigerians that the gesture and confidence being expressed will be reciprocated with more dedication and service to our dear country Nigeria.

    Those hatching sinister agenda to paint the new Administration of tribal persecution should have a rethink now. Its quite obvious the biggest problems Nigeria is confronted with are corruption and insecurity and, while corruption cuts across all Nigerian tribes; the most daunting insecurity of Boko Haram insurgency comes from the President’s own backyard of the north. It can only be the biggest failure of Buhari’s administration that is enjoying the overwhelming goodwill of all Nigerian if, he fails to stem the tide of impunity which became a norm rather than the rule under the watch of Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. The leadership of the opposition PDP has never hidden its displeasure at sudden loss of power and will stop at nothing from destabilising the proccess of rescuing and re-establishing a new order or reform that brings equity which will restore justice and security to all Nigerians. The Boko Haram supports, Nigerians should not forget; is coming from the likes of character of Col. Dasuki and, DSS will be an irresponsible state organisation if they sleep on their job and to allow Col. Dasuki and his cohost develop into another monstrous elements in the fight against Boko Haram. Buhari no doubt needs the supports of all Nigerians if he is to succeed in the fight against corruption and Boko Haram. LONG LIVE NIGERIA.

    In the first instant this guy is not entitle to any protection after his retirement. The immunity for protection by Nigerian Army is automatically removed after he has stepped down. I don’t understand what he was thinking when he tried to prevent DSS from doing their job even after showing him search warrant. He must be ignorant of law. If we observe the situation very well especially in regards to Boko Haram, this guy Dasuki is not clean. I guess he is one of BH financier and possibly weapon supplier. It does not take all that stress to clamp down BH if not for the support of Judas in Nigerian Army like this Sambo Dasuki. Folks, the era of greed is gradually diminishing and this is the government of transparency and accountability. This is the time of accountability especially for those in the leadership position during the Jonathan’s administration. May God help this Government and bless Nigeria as a whole.
