Director General of National Taskforce to Combat Illegal Importation of Small Arms, Ammunition, and Light Weapons, Dr Emmanuel Osita Okereke, has advocated that anybody standing trial on criminal case should not be allowed to travel overseas in whatever guise.
Speaking yesterday in Enugu, the DG NAT-force said former National Security adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki, should not be allowed to travel because he may have concluded plans to flee to Syria once he is out of the country.
According to him, Dasuki was likely to escape just like the former EFCC boss, Ibrahim Lamorde, that escaped through Chad border and other three countries before fleeing abroad.
He alleged that the ex-NSA boss contributed about 80 percent to the security problems we are having today and was also responsible for so many Boko Haram activities in the North-east that have claimed thousands of innocent lives of Nigerians.
“He disobeyed several court orders while in office for his selfish interest. Why is he asking that order of the same court he disobeyed while in office should be obeyed now?” he queried.
DG NAT-force stated that Dasuki was one of the people that deceived former President, Goodluck Jonathan, when he convinced him to remove all the service chiefs so that he can have his way to empower Boko Haram.
“There is information we made available to former President and he was directed to invite us for more information but Dasuki rebuffed it because he was trying to save his boys and agents.
“We know how many arms that entered this country illegally through various borders which ex-NSA concealed and protected the suspects in case he might be implicated.
“My men intercepted 12 trailer- load of ammunition at Sema border, and Col. Sambo used his boys to clear the arms and threatened to assassinate me when I wrote to the former president Jonathan,” DG NAT-force revealed.
Dr. Okereke, who expressed dismay that the man who should be answering treasonable felony charges, should be talking of going for medical check-up oversees. “It is only in Nigeria that somebody who is standing trial in a criminal matter would want to travel abroad for medical check-up,” Okereke disclosed.
