End of siege as DSS arrests Dasuki

Published

After laying siege at the Abuja residence of former National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki, for about three weeks, the Department of State Services (DSS) on Tuesday finally arrested him.

This could bring to a temporary halt, the game of cat and mouse between the service, and the former security chief who was prevented from leaving the country, even after a federal High Court in Abuja ruled that he should be allowed to travel out of the country for medical treatment.
