The Nigerian Government has ordered the release of Omoyele Sowore, and former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki.
The order was given 18 days after Sowore was rearrested at the Federal High Court, Abuja, by operatives of Department of State Services.
Dasuki on was arrested on December 1, 2015 by the DSS for allegedly stealing $2.1bn and accused of awarding phantom contracts to buy 12 helicopters, four fighter jets, and ammunition meant for Nigeria’s military campaign against Boko Haram Islamist militants.
He had been detained since that period despite being granted bail by four different high court judges in Nigeria and ECOWAS Court.
