DSS Grills Former Minister After He Stood As Surety For Ex-NSA Dasuki
A former governor of Adamawa state and former minister of youth under Goodluck Jonathan administration, Boni Haruna, was yesterday quizzed by the Department of State Services (DSS), after he stood as a surety for former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.
Dasuki was yesterday granted permission by the federal high court, to travel abroad for medical check-up on the grounds that he would provide a surety or have his lawyers sign an undertaking that he would be available in court at the trial date.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola, who presided over the matter ordered the immediate release of the travelling document to Dasuki with the said condition.
Shortly after the court order, Boni Haruna,? who was seen in court, stood as a surety for Dasuki to enable him fulfill the requirement of the order of the court.
He was afterwards invited by the DSS, which is prosecuting Dasuki for alleged illegal possession of firearms and money laundering.
A top source said: “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.
