The Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA) has described has unfair and a total falsehood the news report in some media that the National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki has ordered the arrest of Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal at a meeting with Vice President Namadi Sambo and Inspector General of Police Suleman Abba.
Colonel Bello Fadile, director special duties in the Office of National Security Adviser, retired described the reports and rumours as untrue and total falsehood.
Colonel Fadile said: “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 (sic) 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.”
Meanwhile the Spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, Ag CP Emmanuel Ojukwu has also denied the report of an order for any such arrest.
The police spokesman however added that: “It lies with the investigators to determine who should be quizzed and/or prosecuted, as the case may be for criminal acts.” ( PRNigeria)
