Its been 730 days since former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (Retd.) was arrested and detained.

The family, under the Sultan Ibrahim Dasuki Progressive Association of Dogon Daji House, Sokoto State, spoke with newsmen on Friday.

They lambasted the government and demanded that they should “immediately release” Dasuki, except they intend to kill him.

The family reminded the media that the ex-NSA had been arraigned before four federal courts which granted him bail, “while the Economic Community of West African States’ court also ordered his release and that he should be paid N15m compensation.

In spite of all these, “the Federal Government refused to obey any of the court orders.”

“The association on behalf of the entire Sultan Dasuki family wishes to request the Federal Government, under the leadership of Muhammadu Buhari, to respect the rule of law in the case of our son, brother, cousin and former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, and release him from detention.

“Surprisingly, in over two years that Dasuki was detained without any court order or warrant, he has been subjected to media trial, scandalised, criminalised, insulted and humiliated through the propaganda of the current administration.”

Dasuki was arrested by operatives of the Department of State Services and has been in custody since December 29, 2015.
