Court orders new venue for Dasuki to meet lawyers

23 May 2016, 20:22

Abuja - An Abuja High Court has ordered that detained former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, be allowed to access his lawyers at a neutral place instead of the premises of the Department of the State Security Service (DSS) Headquarters.

Justice Husain Baba Yusuf, who issued the order in Abuja on Monday, ordered that DSS operatives enable Dasuki access his lawyers within the premises of the Federal Capital Territory Judiciary Headquarters in Maitama, Abuja between Monday to Friday this week.

Yusuf said this would enable Dasuki prepare adequately for his defence in the trial against a number of charges, mainly the alleged misappropriation of US2 billion meant for weapons for the military.

The pronouncement followed a complaint by Dasuki’s lawyer, Adeola Adedipe, that the legal team had not been allowed to have direct access to Dasuki in spite of a court order made on April 6.

Yusuf who had earlier indicated that he was not going to grant any further adjournment however adjourned the case till June 6 for the DSS to comply with his April ruling.

Dasuki has been granted bails by three different high courts but DSS has not released him.
