Sanusi being probed for suspicions of being a major financier of terrorism in the country.

Federal Government, yesterday, said it was
investigating suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, on suspicions of being a major
financier of terrorism in the country.
This was revealed by the Department of State Services, DSS, in a
counter-affidavit to the suit filed by Sanusi before a Federal High
Court sitting in Lagos, in which he is seeking to restrain the Police
and operatives of DSS from arresting, detaining or otherwise
harassing him.
The DSS told the court that it impounded Sanusi’s international
passport because of on-going investigations over alleged terrorism
financing.
Further in the counter-affidavit, DSS argued that it was absurd
for Sanusi to say that an interaction with DSS for less than an hour
amounted to a violation of his rights.
It argued that the provisions of Section 6 of the National Security
Agencies Act empowered the service to impound the international
passports of suspects pending conclusion of investigations.
It would be recalled that upon Sanusi’s arrival at Murtala
Muhammed International Airport, Lagos on February 20, the DSS
impounded his international passport.
No evidence of such against me —Sanusi
However, Sanusi has denied being a financier of terrorists, insisting
that the Federal Government had failed to substantiate the allegation
of terrorism financing levelled against him.
Do you think Sanusi might be guilty or is this the work of the presidency ?
