Dasuki may be in detention for long

30 June 2016, 17:21

Abuja - The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Community Court of Justice adjourned sine die (indefinitely) the ruling in the case of former national security adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki (rtd) against the federal government, Vanguard reports.

Justice Friday Nwoke, who presided over the court on May 16 reserved judgment till today (Thursday, June 30, 2016) after taking final argument from the former NSA’s counsel, Robert Emukperuo and the federal government lawyer, Tijani Gazali.

Dasuki was taken by the federal government before the ECOWAS Court praying the regional court to intervene in his detention without trial since December, 2015.

The ex-NSA asked the court to void his detention, the seizure of his properties and to prevent the federal government from continuously holding him in custody, without a legal court order.

In the court action filed by Dasuki’s counsel, Robert Emukpoeruo, Dasuki told the court to award in his favour a sum of N500 million as compensatory damages for the alleged illegal intrusion of his house, detention, seizure of properties and infringement on his fundamental human rights.

He noted that government had put him on trial on three different high courts on corruption charges, where he was granted bail and after his bail, he was re-arrested on December 29, 2015 and has since been held inaccessible without lawful court order according to Naij.
