The Federal Government says former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) on Monday rejected its offer to an offer to visit his late father, Ibrahim Dasuki, in an Abuja hospital.
According to Minister for Interior Abdulrahman Danbazau, Sambo also declined another offer to be in Sokoto throughout the mourning of his father, saying he (Sambo) preferred to pray for him.
The Minister disclosed this while addressing newsmen in Sokoto on Tuesday.
”We had discussed with the Director-General, DSS, yesterday and Sambo was offered to visit his late father on his hospital bed in Abuja.
”He declined and said he preferred to pray for him. He was also offered to be in Sokoto throughout the mourning period and he also declined, preferring to pray for his late father. That was the true situation,” Danbazau said.
Ibrahim Dasuki, who was the former Sultan of Sokoto, and father of Col. Sambo, died on Monday in an Abuja Hospital at the age of 93.
He was buried in Sokoto on Tuesday.
