Ex-Gov Lamido speaks on continuous detention of Dasuki

No one knows who’s in charge, Buhari or his Chief of Staff – Lamido

A former governor of Jigawa State and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sule Lamido, on Friday spoke on the continuous incarceration of the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

He spoke on the heels of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa on Thursday.

He said he hoped that Jonathan might have used the opportunity of the visit to appeal to Buhari to release Dasuki.

In a post on his Facebook page on Friday, Lamido wrote, “I am sure former President Jonathan must have put in a word for his very loyal incarcerated NSA Dasuki who dutifully acted on his orders just as CBN Governor Emefele acted dutifully on his orders to release the money,

“Even President Buhari claimed that money was released from the Central Bank on instruction written on an ordinary piece of paper.”
