Please Don’t Let My Husband Die in Prison, Dasuki’s Wife Begs

 

 

A mild drama played out at the office of the Department of State Security (DSS), Thursday as the wife the former National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki created a scene.

Mrs Dasuki in company of children and relations to Dasuki staged a protest, pleading for his freedom.

Mrs Dasuki pleaded with top officials of the agency not to allow her husband die in custody.

She and other relations had waited patiently for Dasuki to meet the last peg of his bail conditions, a surety with about N250million property.

But immediately Dasuki was released at the prison, he was re-arrested by the DSS.

After several hours of trying to locate her husband, she returned to the DSS office and demanded for him or in the alternative, she should be locked up with him.

She reportedly said: “Nigerians should help me beg the Federal Government, the DSS and other agencies to release my husband who did his best to serve this nation. He is ill, he needs medical attention, he is not pretending. I implore the DSS not to allow him to die in custody”, she said.

She was reported to have cried: “I saw my husband and I felt dejected. He is not just well. Nigerians should assist him to get a reprieve. We (myself, the children and relations) are all destabilised. We don’t know what is happening because three courts have granted him bail. Why are they after him? Let those concerned respect the court by releasing my husband.

“There is no way my husband will run away from the country under any guise. They should please follow the rule of law and uphold his right to bail.”

A source said Dasuki’s wife was allowed to see her husband.

“We have followed the rule of law , the ex-NSA is in safe custody. He was once in DSS custody and he was never maltreated and he had access to medicare,” the source said.

A judge of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Justice Peter Affen last Wednesday banned the EFCC from re-arresting Dasuki, ex-Minister Bashir Yuguda, former Director of Finance at the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) Shuaibu Salisu, Sagir Attahiru and former Governor Attahiru Dalhatu Bafarawa.

The order of the court followed the granting of the application for bail by counsel to the defendants, including Peter Akper (SAN); Ahmed Raji (SAN); Dr. J. O. Olatoke (SAN); H.O. Afolabi (SAN) and A.U Mustapha.

However, DSS operatives refused to allow Dasuki  to go home on bail even after he had perfected his bail consitions.

    When her husband (Col Dasuki) was acting as the ultimate chief law officer of the land and directing CBN gov to release funds meant for the welfare of NIgerians, where was the wife who’s supposed to be always beside him to let him know that it wasn’t right. She’s aware of all the fat bank accounts and some of the money stacked in warehouses in all across the land. Where was she? I guess those widows and orphans and those buried/consumed by BH have no right to be Nigerians or even to be counted as human beings. They stole the moneys that was meant to secure the Country and build and maintain public institutions in Nigeria, including but not limited to hospitals, Universities, Military
    , etc. If he served Nigeria well, he should go and get the services of those institutions that he built. Why travel abroad to seek medical attention? The National Hospital is there, the CMD there said they can treat him for whatever illness/ailment he’s complaining of. Assuming, he is found guilty by the Court, are you saying, he will be flown abroad as a prisoner to get medical attention, he will be served foreign dishes of his choices, exotic cars, furnished prison cell,/court yard where he will be serving his sentence? These questions is for Col Dasuki’s family and friends to answer . This should serve as example for those who assume certain priviledged positions in our society and claim untouchable status and think they’re God. It doesn’t matter how many priests and Imams you pay to pray for you, the collective cries and blood of the innocent masses will ultimately prevail. Well done PMB, the peoples’ president. Please, uphold your oath. God will surely see you through.
