National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) has denied reports that his office had ordered the arrest of Speaker House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal at a meeting with Vice President Namadi Sambo and Inspector General of Police Suleman Abba.
Director Special Duties in the Office of NSA, retired Colonel Bello Fadile in a statement by PR NIgeria described the report as total falsehood.
“It is not only untrue and mere fabricated reports that the NSA met with the VP and ordered the arrest of Hon Tambuwal. The fact is that the National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki has been outside the country since Wednesday on pressing national security issues.
“To the best of our knowledge there is no any order for the arrest of Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of the House of Representatives.
“We therefore urge the media to always cross-check their stories before going to the press.”
