ECOWAS wants Dasuki case quickly dealt with

17 May 2016, 20:01

Abuja - The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Court is seeking a speedy resolution to the legal battle between the federal government and former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

The court also ordered the detained retired army officer to make out his case against the government on Wednesday challenging his detention since December last year.

The government has to put its defense at the disposal of the court on Thursday.

Presiding Judge of the regional court, Friday Chijioke Nwoke, gave the order in Abuja on Tuesday at the resumed hearing in a legal action instituted by Dasuki to challenge his alleged unlawful detention, unlawful seizure of properties and infringement on his fundamental rights to freedom.

“Having listened to parties in this matter and the parties having filed and put all necessary documents and exhibits at the disposal of this court and having granted accelerated hearing in this matter, it is in the interest of justice that this case must be expeditiously dealt with,”

Nwokwe said.

Dasuki is facing charges of misappropriating US$2 billion meant for the procurement of arms to fight the Boko Haram insurgents.
