Dasuki’s Continued Detention In Order, Court Rules

ex-nsa_sambo_dasukiAn Abuja High Court sitting in Maitama on Friday said the continued detention of the former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, was in order.
Justice Peter Affen, who delivered ruling on the matter brought by Dasuki against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), said the EFCC did not violate any subsisting court order in the detention of the ex-NSA.
This is the second time a judge is faulting Dasuki’s claim that his continued detention was in violation of a subsisting court order.
The judge also dismissed the application by the former NSA seeking to stop his trial or quash the charges against him.
Dasuki is arraigned alongside a former Director of Finance and Administration in the Office of the NSA, Shuaibu Salisu, ex-Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda, a former Governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Bafarawa, the ex-governor’s son, Sagir Attahiru and Dalhatu Investment Limited, on a 22-count charge of looting about N13billion public funds.
