20 January 2016, 13:21

Abuja - The Federal Government has been ordered to produce former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasiki (rdt) in court on February 16 to answer criminal charges filed against him, Punch reports.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court in Abuja who gave the order said that it is mandatory for a defendant in a criminal matter to be physically present in court at every stage of the prosecution except where the presence of an accused is excused by court for reasons.

The reaction of Justice Ademola was provoked by the failure of government to bring Dasuki to court on Wednesday without any reason for continuation of his trial.

Justice Ademola adjourned the trial till February 16 and 17.
