SSS accuses Dasuki of "alleged plans to commit treasonable felony"

I've pasted the full statement below, but key points are:

- SSS move to "pre-empt individuals with penchant for impunity & lawlessness from putting back the nation to the dark days" -SSS statement.

- Incriminating evidence found include: 7 assault rifles + 5 bulletproof cars "being kept for possible sinister enterprise"

- they had a search warrant, but not an arrest warrant.

It comes after what PRNigeria described as an end of a 24 hour "siege" of Dasuki's Abuja home by the SSS. His international passports have been seized but there is no restriction on his movements.

Full Statement:

SSS PRESS RELEASE ON EX-NSA SAMBO DASUKI

PREVENTING ATTEMPTS TO COMMIT TREASONABLE FELONY: THE SEARCH ON THE RESIDENCE (S) OF MOHAMMED SAMBO DASUKI (COL RTD), IMMEDIATE PAST NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER (NSA)

Gentlemen of the Press, good evening.

2. On 16th July, 2015, about 1650 hours, based on credible intelligence linking the immediate past NSA, Mohammed Sambo DASUKI (Col Rtd) with alleged plans to commit treasonable felony against the Nigerian State, operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) conducted a search on the properties belonging to the former NSA, Mohammed Sambo DASUKI (Col Rtd). The properties are on Nos. 13, John Khadya Street, Nos. 46, Nelson Mandela Street, both at Asokoro, Abuja, and Nos. 3 Sabon Birni Road, Gwiwa Area, Sokoto, Sokoto State.

3. The search operations was planned to be simultaneously conducted, but DASUKI, refused the operatives entry into his main residence located at No. 13 John Khadya Street, Asokoro, despite being presented with a genuine and duly signed search warrant. Consequently, what was to last not more than two (2) hours, lasted more than ten (10) hours, up till the early hours of 17th July, 2015. Indeed if not for the sense of maturity and professionalism of the officers and men assigned this task and the very good understanding and timely intervention of the new Chief of Army Staff, Tsukur Y. BURATAI (Maj Gen), there would have been a clash between the Army operatives guarding the house and Service operatives, as SAMBO directed the soldiers on duty not to allow any movement into his house, despite the subsisting court order. SAMBO thereafter raised a false alarm to the military authorities to come to his aid as he failed to correctly tell the military that his property was about to be legitimately searched.

4. Gentlemen, please recall that SAMBO retired from the Army as a Colonel, and therefore not entitled to have military guards, if not for the fact he was NSA. Even as NSA, such guards should have been withdrawn after his removal as NSA since he would not have been entitled.

5. The search was thoroughly conducted, and several items recovered, among which were some incriminating items. These include seven (7) high caliber rifles, (high assault weapons), several magazines and military related gears. 

6. The team also recovered twelve (12) new vehicles, out of which five (5) were bullet proofs. These vehicles which are all exotic vehicles were retrieved from SAMBO’s residence having failed to produce evidence of ownership. For instance, what could he be doing with five (5) bullet proof cars as a retired NSA?. These cars which from all available evidence were purchased with tax payers money, were being kept for possible sinister enterprise.

7. The Service would want to state categorically that this search operation is not a witch hunt. The Service decided to move at this time in line with current Management resolve to be proactive and pre-empt individuals with penchant for impunity and lawlessness from putting back the nation to the dark days. The Service is also aware that the lethal arms and the vehicles recovered were not reflected in SAMBO’s handover notes or what could a former NSA be doing with destructive weapons and bullet proof cars which put together could disrupt the peace of any city in Nigeria for a while.

8. On the search of his three (3) properties, including the Sokoto residence, the Service is aware that in his capacity and given his antecedents, he might decide to use any of his residences for such diabolical plans, rather than his main residence.

9. Gentlemen of the press, the Service Management would want to assure members of the public that it would not trample on the freedom of individuals or groups as guaranteed by the Nigerian Constitution and emphasized by the current administration’s position on transparency, and probity underlined by justice and equity for all Nigerians. This is the driving force for all DSS operations. However, the Service would not hesitate to go after any person or group of persons, no matter how highly placed once such individual (s) breach or attempt to breach the laws of the Federation. The days for impunity and indecisiveness in the face of unpatriotic acts by individuals operating against the State are over. The Service hereby appeal to all Nigerians to be law abiding and partner with it in ensuring a peaceful and secured nation. In the same vein, those that are bent on breaking the rules governing our peaceful co-existence due to either the huge ill gotten wealth they have acquired or imaginary hold they think they have on our nation’s survival, are being warned to rethink. The DSS will use all constitutional means as defined by its mandate to deal decisively with such unpatriotic individuals.

10. The Management want to seize this opportunity to appreciate Nigerians for the tremendous acts of goodwill that is being extended to the new dispensation. The Management also wish to assure Nigerians that the gesture and confidence being expressed will be reciprocated with more dedication and service to our dear country Nigeria.

11. Happy Eid-el-Fitri to you and indeed, all Nigerians. 

12. Thank you.

Goodluck Jonathan: is he Nigeria's most historic President?

In 2011, Goodluck Jonathan was elected as the new hope for Nigeria overseeing what were widely deemed to be the country's "fairest" elections. 4 years later he was Nigeria's first President to be voted out of office. 

How can I even contemplate that this man might be Nigeria's most historical President?

Firstly, a few reasons he was voted out: Jonathan had perhaps one of the worst PR teams imaginable; Boko Haram made huge territorial gains; corruption ran rampant with figures like Diezani Allison-Madueke and Niger Delta militants; Electricity had dropped to its lowest levels in decades as he left office; he was a very divisive President that failed to build+sustain alliances and so on...

But, there are some counter arguments to each of those: for example, no government could have been prepared for the scale of the Chibok story or how quickly Social Media could turn on a President; the military was re-equipped and with the help of mercenaries beat back Boko Haram's gains; every government is corrupt in Nigeria, just that this time it happened under the watchful eye of social media; Jonathan privatised power and reform takes time; and that plenty of others have used Nigeria's religious divisions for gain before (eg. the violence at the end of the 2011 elections.)...

Arguments for & against Jonathan's tenure can be debated, and whether they were successes or failures - all of them can be so easily undone by his successor. And that's the point. Ultimately, the policies of Jonathan's tenure mattered in the election but not necessarily in the history books.

Nigerians can be unremittingly harsh on their leaders but the collapse of Nigeria's institutions cannot be blamed on one man alone. Certainly Jonathan's made many mistakes, but...

Goodluck was faced with one historical moment, and he took it.

The historical moment I'm talking about is his decision to keep Jega as the INEC chairman and then make the phone call to Buhari to concede defeat as results were still being counted.

In the end, Jonathan did what he was voted in as a civilian President to do - and that was leave office democratically. But he nearly didn't and was so obviously reluctant to do so after interfering with various local elections - and that, for me, highlights just how important Jonathan's decision was, because it could so easily have gone so differently. Or, as he did throughout most of his tenure, do nothing and allow others like Orubebe to fill the vacuum.

Jonathan had a choice.

And, as events in Burundi show, not everyone makes the right decision. And plenty of other Nigerian President's have squandered the opportunities history gives them, for example, IBB and the annulment of the 1993 election.

I've tried to think of other Presidents in Nigeria's history who have seized their historical moment, and two others come to mind:

- Yakubu Gowon's famous speech "no victor, no vanquished" speech at the end of the Biafra war.
- OBJ's efforts to reform the military after his election in 1999. Although not so public, they have had a deep impact on the military's involvement in civilian government.

Each of these was done for selfish political motives, of course (like all politicians!) - but they were moments that were seized nonetheless. And it's the same with Goodluck - it's unlikely he would have survived long in Aso Rock if he had tried to keep power. But the difference with Goodluck, I would argue, is that he is the only leader to give up his position of power to seize his historical moment. It makes it all the more remarkable.

I'm not advocating for some Nobel Peace Prize or something (that should go to Jega!), but evaluating Jonathan's decision in the context of all the other Nigerian Presidents.

Buhari is now President, but whatever his own policy successes in the next 4 years - they can all be easily undone by his own successor. (something Buhari should know well after he was succeeded by IBB in the 1980s). But it will be difficult for Buhari to undo the fact that if he doesn't perform he may well be voted out, and have to leave... 

... and, whether he likes it or not, that is Goodluck Jonathan's historical legacy.

When you have to go you have to go. And there is no doubt in my mind that President Johnathan had to go. To God be the glory.

Hope. We all hope. For good things, for better, and for the best. Nigerians would be taking a big dose of that tomorrow. It's going to be emotional, like independence - well, very much like independence. We'd start a new phase as we believe for a better system, a true and genuine fight against corruption, a boosted and vibrant economy and so much more. We'd be hoping not to see things as usual anymore. We'd be hoping for a certain future for our children, and children's children. But beyond our hopes is our will; our will to fight with our President to achieve these seeming lofty dreams. He'd fight to do what he can within the ambits of his means. But he wouldn't be able to achieve it alone, we'd have to fight the wars with him. To give him the support, morale and stand by his toughest decisions. To correct him and offer the best advise - far from bias. This is my pledge, because, hope like love, is not enough; will, in action with a fountain of hope is what I believe will be the trigger for this #Change we have here in our hands. #TBT #Inauguration #Nigeria
