Armed operatives of the Department of State Services on Thursday evening invaded the Asokoro, Abuja residence of the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
It was also gathered that his home in Sokoto was also raided. In both invasions, the operatives thoroughly searched the houses before leaving.
The operation is believed to have been authorized by the top hierarchy of the DSS, in connection with the secret probe into how billions of naira allocated for the war against terrorism was allegedly looted.
It has however not been ascertained whether Dasuki was arrested or detained overnight by the operatives but security sources said it is highly likely that the ex-NSA may be whisked away or invited subsequently for interrogation on how he administered the billions that was released for prosecution of the terrorism war in the North-East.
The former NSA coordinated the war against terrorism and his office received billions naira to prosecute the counter-insurgency operations against the violent Boko Haram sect.
Dasuki who was appointed as NSA by former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2012, was relieved of his appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari a few days ago.
