Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has described the arrest yesterday, of the immediate past National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd) by men of the Department of State Services (DSS), as continuation of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration of vengeance. He also said, “disobeying court order and later arresting and detaining the same person the court ordered to be allowed to travel abroad for medicare is the peak of dictatorship.”
Governor Fayose, who reiterated his support for the anti-graft war, insisted that it must be done within the ambit of the law and not used for vengeance.
He declared support for Dasuki’s demand for an open trial as against the Federal Government’s demand for a secret trial.
In a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti yesterday by the governor’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka, Fayose said, “after flagrantly disobeying court orders, whatever that is done or said by the Buhari-led administration concerning Dasuki will appear vindictive and it remains to be seen how an administration that refused to obey the court will now charge Dasuki to the same court.”
