Blame Buhari If Anything Happens To Dasuki - Fayose

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state said President Muhammadu Buhari should be held responsible if anything happens to Col Sambo Dasuki, the former national security adviser.

The governor described the placement of Dasuki under house arrest by the Department of State Services (DSS), despite a court order that he should be allowed to travel abroad for medical treatment, as wicked, inhuman, dictatorial and a clear attempt to deny him of his rights to life as enshrined in the Constitution of Nigeria.

This was contained in a statement released on Friday, November 13, by Lere Olayinka, the special assistant to the governor on public communications and new media, Vanguard reports.

Expressing joy over Friday’s ruling by the Abuja Federal High Court, ordering the DSS to allow Dasuki to travel out of the country, Fayose said Justice A‎demola Adeniyi did the right thing by insisting that court order must be obeyed and that his own orders will not be flouted.

The governor reminded President Buhari that the Nigeria of 1984 that he ruled like a fiefdom is different from that of 2015.

Fayose blamed Buhari for the death of Chief Obafemi Awolowo and the former Bayelsa state governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.

He gave instances from the past, saying: “President Buhari seized late Chief Obafemi Awolowo international passport and prevented him from travelling abroad for medicare in 1985, thereby leading to his (Awolowo) untimely death of 1987.

Buhari also hounded former Bayelsa State Governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha to death all in the name of fighting perceived political opponents.

“The fate that befell Awolowo in 1985 must not be allowed to befall Sambo Dasuki in 2015 and Nigerians must rise against this Buhari’s dictatorship and his instrument of oppression, Lawal Daura.

The governor therefore called on Nigerians, especially men of the judiciary to unite and “shake dictatorship off the body of President Buhari and his hatchet man, Alhaji Lawal Daura.”

He stated that Daura, the director general of the DSS and President Buhari’s kinsman, was an instrument of political persecution.

He likened Daura to Mohammed Lawal Rafindadi, of the Nigerian Security Organisation (NSO) that was also used by Buhari as an instrument of political persecution between 1984 and 1985.

However, Governor Fayose said Nigerians who fought late General Sani Abacha to a standstill will also “fight this emerging Buhari’s ‘militocracy.”

The court ordered that the travel documents of the ex-military official be released to enable him travel abroad for medical checks.

But since the issuance of the court order, operatives of the DSS have been positioned in Dasuki’s residence preventing him from leaving his house.

He sued the federal government over infringements to his fundamental human rights, alleging that his life was under treat by operatives of the DSS.

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday, November 13 ordered the federal government to allow Dasuki to travel for treatment saying, "only a fit person that can be investigated, so let the sick man go to where he is going and come back. There is no big deal."
