Sultan Ibrahim Dasuki, the father of the embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki- is displeased with the manner in which officials of the Department of State Services recently invaded his home.
Dasuki, who was the 18th Sultan of Sokoto until he was deposed by the military regime of the late General Sani Abacha, described the invasion of his Sokoto home as unlawful.
In an interview granted to the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation, on Monday, the senior Dasuki expressed his surprise and displeasure that his residence was invaded without a forewarning or notice.
He said: “I don’t know what they were looking for in my house. Even, I have not spoken with a member of my staff who they opened the house with. They entered into the ceiling of rooms belonging to women and no one said they found anything.
“They entered my portion of the house, there were two safes, they said they found an old Certificate of Occupancy of a house and that in one (of the safes), they found an empty envelop, that is what they said.”
Like I told you before, even the member of my staff who was there, I have not been able to speak with him to know what exactly happened. All I have heard is hearsay and if he told me what happened, in the end, like I did before, I will leave everything to Allah.”
“They did not go to Sambo Dasuki’s house, they went to my house. All my children have a right to my house. Sambo Dasuki is almost 60 years old, he is a man of his own. Can you hold a father responsible for the actions of his son?”
