Sambo Dasuki (retd) the National Security Adviser (NSA) said on Saturday that reports that he ordered the arrest of Aminu Tambuwal, the Speaker of House of Representatives after consulting with the President.
According to Colonel Bello Fadile (retd) director of special duties in the office of the NSA, there was no truth in the report that suggested an impending arrest of the Speaker.
“We want to use this medium to categorically state that there is no iota of truth in the allegations being peddled by mischief makers who are hell bent to tarnish the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) and the Presidency,” Fadile said.
Fadile added that said while the laws must be allowed to take its natural cause, the NSA will not neglect its foremost responsibility of advising the President on how to effectively maintain and sustain peace, as well as the nation’s territorial integrity.
“The ONSA will also want to advise the general public to be very vigilant and not be hoodwinked by propaganda of desperate politicians who are willing to sacrifice the security, unity, peace and stability of the country in the alter of selfish political gains,” he said.
He further warned that the NSA will not tolerate inflammatory and unguarded utterances that is capable of jeopardising the peaceful conduct of the 2015 general elections.
