Dasuki accuses FG of delaying trial

17 February 2016, 15:01

Abuja - Former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, has said the Federal Government will have to comply with an order of the Federal High Court granting him bail before he faces trial.

Counsel to Dasuki, Joseph Daudu said the defence counsel was not ready to proceed with the trial because the Federal Government was still keeping the accused person in detention, despite an order of the court granting him bail.

In November 2015, Justice Adeniyi Ademola had granted Dasuki bail but the Department of State Services, DSS, rearrested him immediately after his release from Kuje prison.

Counsel to the DSS, Dipo Okpeseyi (SAN), announced to the court on Tuesday that the prosecution was ready for trial to commence.

He argued that the prosecution was not stopping Dasuki from enjoying his freedom, saying the accused person was not allegedly held for the charges before the court.

He, therefore, asked the court to reject the request for adjournment and to commence trial. But the court adjourned till March 3 for the hearing on a motion to discharge Dasuki.
