08 March 2016, 18:05

Abuja - Nicholas Ashinze, a former special assistant to the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki has sued the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for allegedly detaining him illegally, demanding N500 million as compensation.

Ashinze also prayed an Abuja High Court to issue an order declaring his arrest and detention by the EFCC, since December 23, unlawful.

In the suit filed against the commission, the Chief of Army Staff and the Nigerian Army, Ashinze also asked the court to issue an order preventing his re-arrest.

The EFCC accuses Ashinze of diverting funds meant for the purchase of arms by Dasuki.

He was arrested by the commission on December 23, 2015 for his alleged involvement in the diversion of $2.1 billion by the former NSA.

Ashinze has remained in the custody of the EFCC since his arrest, without been charged to court.
