Nigeria: Former Security Adviser Charged


Sambo Dasuki, former National Security Adviser under ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, was officially charged with illegal possession of weapons and acts that pose potential harm to national security.

Security forces in mid-July searched properties belonging to Dasuki and his father, announcing the discovery of “large quantities of arms and ammunition”, including 5 bulletproof vehicles. Dasuki was removed a few days earlier from his post by the new President Muhammadu Buhari, who replaced the armed forces leadership.

Meanwhile, Boko Haram attacks continue in northern Nigeria: at least 6 people were killed and 28 injured today when a young female suicide bomber blew herself up at a bus station in Damaturu, capital of Yobe State.


MISNA, or the Missionary International Service News Agency, provides daily news ‘from, about and for’ the 'world’s Souths', not just in the geographical sense, since December 1997.
