Abuja - The hearing of the motion filed by the Federal Government seeking to revoke the bail granted Sambo Dasuki, the immediate past National Security Adviser (NSA), is set to resume at the Federal High Court in Abuja this morning.

At the last resumed hearing of the suit, lawyer to the federal government, Mohammed Diri, told the court that a notice of appeal has been lodged at the Court of Appeal challenging the judgment of the court granting bail to the former National Security Adviser.

Dasuki, who had pleaded not guilty to previous charges of alleged illegal possession of firearms and money-laundering preferred against him by DSS had earlier been granted bail by a Federal High Court to enable him seek medical attention.

Dasuki, despite securing bail on self-recognition in September, is in custody for allegedly stealing $2 billion and accused of awarding phantom contracts to buy 12 helicopters, four fighter jets, and ammunition meant for the Nigeria's military campaign against Boko Haram Islamist militants.

Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) arrested him on Tuesday.

The agency had been laying siege to his residence for about a month and restricted his movement.
