Two days after an Abuja High Court granted former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki leave to travel abroad for medical attention, operatives of the Directorate of State Security, DSS, on Thursday invaded his Abuja residence.
Although no statement was issued on the invasion as at press time, the operatives were sighted around the Asokoro home of Dasuki in unmarked vehicles.
The reason for the invasion is not known but it might be aimed at stopping the retired army colonel from traveling abroad for medical treatment.
In July, the DSS had arrested Dasuki after a similar siege on his Abuja home.
Last Tuesday, Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court granted the request of former NSA under former president Goodluck Jonathan for his travel document to be released in order to take care his deteriorating health.
Sources report that Dasuki’s travelling plans on Wednesday night was aborted following a tip-off of his possible arrest by the DSS, who allegedly planned to arrest him or scuttle his planned medical trip.
