According to a statement issued by Tony Opuiyo for the DSS, the firearms were discovered in Dasuki’s Abuja residence when security agents carried out searches on his homes in Abuja and Sokoto.

“Consequently, on Monday 24th August, 2015, he was charged to court based on evidence so far obtained, but which relates to possession of fire arms without license punishable under section 27(i)(a)(i) of the Firearms Act Cap F28 LFN 2004,” the DSS statement read, adding that the public will be duly informed on how the case proceeds.
