According to Punch, the secret police stationed two vans at the gate of the residence of Dasuki. The newspaper said its investigations revealed that the DSS operatives besieged the residence of Dasuki with the intent to prevent him from embarking on a planned trip to the UK for medical treatment.
The report had it that Dasuki was billed to travel out of the country on Wednesday night through a Lufthansa flight but had to call off the trip when it was discovered that DSS operatives were waiting for him at the airport.
He was said to have decided to postpone the journey to Thursday in order to avoid any incident at the airport. “The SSS are raiding the residence of the former NSA, Dasuki again,” Punch quoted a source as saying. “We really can’t say why they went there.
They were with two of their operational vehicles painted in black and are parked outside. “You know that the man was to travel to the UK via a Lufthansa Flight on Wednesday night.
“The man had to call off the journey when it was realised that the SSS had gone to the airport to lay siege to him. Then, this morning, they went to the house, nobody knows their intention for now.” On Tuesday, the court ruled that Dasuki’s international passport, which was seized by the DSS, should be released to enable him travel abroad for medical treatment.
