Immediate National Security Adviser, retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki, has denied ever receiving any invitation letter to appear before a Committee set up by the Muhammadu Buhari administration to investigate procurement processes relating to any arms transaction by the last administration of Goodluck Jonathan, under which he served.

Responding to a statement of Department of State Services (DSS), whose operatives laid y siege on his Abuja residence on the day he was supposed to travel abroad for medical treatment, Dasuki added that it was strange that a committee purported to be operating from the Office of the National Security Adviser could have transferred its mandates to DSS.

Mews Express reports that Dasuki was first arrested by the SSS in July after a prolonged siege on his Abuja residence. He was charged to court with illegal possession of arms and money laundering.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court last Tuesday granted Mr. Dasuki’s request for his passport to be released, to enable him receive treatment abroad.

His attempt to travel on Wednesday and Thursday for the medical treatment was thwarted by operative of secret service.
