Abuja - Justice Adeniyi Ademola, one of the judges arrested by the Department of State Security (DSS) has withdrawn from the trial of former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, reports The Cable.

Ademola withdrew from the trial on Tuesday before the court, stating that the DSS had accused him of receiving bribes in connection to the case.

The DSS according to News 24 had alleged that it recovered some foreign currencies from Ademola’s residence during a raid on October 7.

When Dasuki’s case was called on Tuesday, Ademola addressed Dapo Okpeseyi, the prosecution, and Adedayo Adedeji, counsel to Dasuki, ‎before announcing his decision to withdraw from the case.

He later asked Dasuki some questions pertaining to the allegations against him.

Ademola: Do you know me at all?

Dasuki: Before I came to this court, not at all.

Ademola: Did you at any time give me money?

Dasuki: Not that I am aware of.

Ademola: Did you send your lawyers to give me money‎?

Dasuki: Not at all.

Ademola: Did you give money to any of my relatives‎?

Dasuki: Not at all, maybe the DSS alleging that did.”

Recalled that the DSS raided the house of Ademola  and six other judges on October 7 over accusation of collecting bribes in cases before their courts.

Ademola had after his detention said his arrest was ordered by the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami due to a personal vendetta.
