Justice Minister to explain siege on Dasuki's home

17 November 2015, 11:11

Abuja - The new Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, is now scheduled to appear in court next Monday to explain the siege laid on the Abuja residence of former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki.

He was initially scheduled to appear yesterday (Monday) but Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court in Abuja extended at the instance of the new Solicitor General of the Federation, Taiwo Abidogun.

Abidogun who was in court on Monday for the first time on Dasuki’s legal action had informed Justice Ademola that Malami had yet to assume office.

The Solicitor General claimed that the minister would assume office on Wednesday and would be briefed on the Dasuki’s court action between Thursday and Friday and urged the court to grant them permission to appear in the court next Monday.

Justice Ademola had last Friday issued summons against the Attorney General following complaints by Dasuki's lawyers that the order of the court made since November 3 had not been allowed to be implemented by operatives of the Department State Security (DSS).

Dasuki is facing corruption and illegal firearms possession charges.

He is demanding that his travel documents be release so he can travel to seek medical attention.
