Reports just coming in have that the residence of the former national security adviser, Sambo Dasuki, in Asokoro district of Abuja is under siege by officials of the State Security Service (SSS)
Premium Times citing a source with knowledge about the siege reports that the siege began at about 6.40 pm, on Thursday July 16, after SSS officials stormed the Asokoro residence of the former NSA boss and ordered soldiers guiding his residence to stay away.
While the siege on his Asokoro residence lasted, another set of SSS officials swooped on the country home of Dasuki in Sokoto metropolis, which is owned by his father.
They have descended on our House and have so far searched the whole House including a large container that has been in the compound for many years,” the source said of the Sokoto home.
The contry home of Dasuki’s is currently on lock-down as the security operatives have prevented any one from going in or out.
At his Abuja residence, Sambo Dasuki is reported to be having a standoff with the security agents as he has refused to see them. As at the time of writing this report, the SSS operatives were still outside his residence insisting on seeing him.
The current siege on Dasuki's residence may be connected to President Buhari's order to the former NSA boss to account for funds he received and spent under his tenure in the prosecution of the Boko Haram insurgency.
