EFCC Pressures SSS To Handover Sambo Dasuki For Questioning
Published:2 Dec, 2015
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is putting pressure on the State Security Service to hand over former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, to it for interrogation over the ongoing investigation into arms procurement contracts during the Goodluck Jonathan administration.
Mr. Dasuki was arrested by the SSS on Tuesday after about a month-long siege on his residence in Abuja.
The agency thereafter took him to its headquarters where he has been in detention since then.
The senior lawyer heading the former NSA’s legal team, Joseph Daudu, on Tuesday said that he was aware the EFCC applied to Justice Adeniyi Ademola to revoke the bail his court granted Mr. Dasuki.
He also said he was aware the application was pending before the court.
But a source at the EFCC told this newspaper that the anti-graft agency was working hard on getting the SSS to release Mr. Dasuki to it for questioning.
“We are working on that angle, whether he would be handed over today or not is what I cannot say with certainty for now,” the source said.
