- South Africa Returns Seized Cash
After more than 24hours of siege, the Federal Government has ordered the withdrawal of the State Security Service (SSS) personnel from the Abuja home of the immediate past National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd).
This was however effected only after they seized his International Passports and other vital documents. Even though there is no more restriction of his movement, Dasuki still feel aggrieved that he was deprived of performing his religious obligation of attending the Eid Prayers, making the end of Ramadan Fasting.
Dasuki has vowed to challenge the action by seeking legal redress in order to enforce his fundamental human rights.
Meanwhile, it has been gathered that legal and diplomatic processes initiated by the former National Security Adviser have ensured that cash seized by the South African government during the cash for arms saga last year have been fully recovered by Nigeria.
It would be recalled that President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration was forced to resort to the alternative market to obtain arms when western powers blocked every access to the formal arms market but the cash were seized both at the airport and in the bank.
