The Department of State Services DSS, has released Sambo Dasuki.

This was disclosed to Premium Times by his lawyer, Raji Ahmed, who said that the former national security adviser was freed on Tuesday night.

Col Dasuki’s freedom comes hours after the DSS also released Omoyele Sowore, an activist who was arrested in August for organising a nationwide protest for good governance.

According to the report by Premium Times, both detainees were released on the directives of Attorney-General Abubakar Malami, who prevailed on the DSS in a Tuesday morning statement to obey valid court orders and release them from illegal custody.

Mr Dasuki, a retired Nigerian Army colonel, was Nigeria’s national security adviser until May 2015. He was arrested a few months after leaving office on allegations of corruption and illegal arms dealings.

However he denied any wrongdoing.

Even though the Federal High Court in Abuja where he was arraigned granted him bail more than once, the DSS failed to release him until today.
