DASUKI FAILS TO STOP TRIAL OVER FRAUD
Written by thereachfm on February 28, 2019
A Federal Capital Territory, FCT, High Court, Maitama, has dismissed the application filed by a former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd), asking the court to adjourn his N28.3 billion fraud trial indefinitely
The intent of the motion, according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was to compel the federal government to comply with the order of a Federal High court Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, which on July 2, 2018 ordered his unconditional release.
However, prosecuting counsel, O.A. Atolagbe, has urged the court to give a date for trial to allow the prosecution bring more witnesses, to testify against Dasuki and his co-defendants – Aminu Baba-Kusa, a former General Manager of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.
