Emerging reports have it that there heightened calls from all quarters of the country for President Muhammadu Buhari to swing into a swift action and expedite the extradition process of Col. Bello Fadile and Major-General Bello Sarki Yaki who are currently on exile in an unknown land and face prosecution over their alleged involvement in the $2.1 billion arms scandal. Col. Fadile is the former Special Adviser to the former President Goodluck Jonathan on Domestic Affairs and Director in charge of Special Duties when Col. Sambo Dasuki held sway as National Security Adviser whereas, Sarki Yaki is the immediate past Special Adviser on Counter-Terrorism in the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA) and the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015 Kebbi State Governorship election. A reliable source said that the inability of President Buhari-led government to bring this duo to justice has irked a concerned group to spearhead a campaign that will pressurize the government to rise to the occasion on the case of the two alleged political conmen. The group, whose name has not been mentioned by the source, bemoaned the snail’s pace of the government over the case of Fadile and Sarki Yaki, wondering if the duo are above the law or have implanted a cabal in the Buhari-led administration, who has continued to torpedo any attempt to bring them to book. The concerned group warned that President Buhari’s anti-corruption pedigree, who has blazed a trail in the fight against corruption should not be relegated to a public mockery by the suspected presidency cabal. In a letter written to the presidency by the group and copied Chief Justice of Nigeria, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Attorney-General of the Federation, National Security Adviser, Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Director-General State Security Services and National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), the group showered encomium on President Buhari’s effort to stamp out corruption and clean the Augean stables of PDP’s governments, urging Mr. President to prove his critics wrong by ensuring that his anti-corruption war does not recognise any sacred cow but will sweep any corrupt individual without knowing whose ox is gored. The letter read in parts; “It is consoling to all well-meaning Nigerians of all strata that even at 75, you are passionate about the unity of this country and disposed to observance of the rule of law, transparency, probity and public accountability. I join teaming Nigerians in passing accolades and celebrating your person. “Nigerians can recall, upon your resumption in office, one of the first and the major corruptions cases that pervaded the air of Nigeria and known all over the world, is the arms scandal, which warranted the trial of the immediate past National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki. The $2.1 billion arms deal did not implicate only Dasuki but there are numerous persons in the previous administration that are facing trial regarding the issue popularly known as Dasukigate. Some are on exile and those on exile are enjoying protection from people that are major and key players in your government. “Our concern is the information available to us is that the culprit, Sarki Yaki, who’s at large, is working with individuals who are key figures of this government to pervert justice. “It is a collective duty of all Nigerians to put our hands on deck, eyes opened and help this government in the fight against corruption.
