In spite of being granted permission by a Federal High Court to travel abroad for medical treatment, Sambo Dasuki, may still have some hurdles to cross.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola had on Tuesday, granted Dasuki’s request to travel abroad on health grounds.
After the court ruling of Tuesday, The Nation reports that security officials invited him for questioning over ‘fresh security matters’.
The security operatives contacted Dasuki’s lawyer, Mallam Ahmed Raji (SAN), asking him to produce his client.
But Dasuki was reported to have told them to approach the court if there is any fresh allegation or security issue against him.
“Immediately after the court session, the security invited Haruna, who was the surety in line with the laid down conditions by the court, for interaction.
“They asked him why he went to court; whether he had foreknowledge of the likely ruling of the court and how did he emerge as Dasuki’s surety.
“Haruna simply told them that he only followed his friend to the court and when it was time to provide a surety he fitted into the bill.
“They asked him to produce his friend (Dasuki). They even followed him to Dasuki’s house in a car.
“But Dasuki asked: “Why will they see me? Why are they inviting me again? Why can’t they approach the court if there are new charges against me?
“They called Dasuki’s counsel (Raji) to produce his client to ‘come and clarify another matter’. They were not forthcoming on what exactly it is but when Raji got in touch with Dasuki, he insisted on due process through the court.”
In spite of Dasuki’s refusal to honour the invitation, it is believed that he may not allow him travel for medical check-up until he shows up.
