Ahmed-Raji-Dasuki-SamboThe trial of former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, over alleged diversion of over N32billion from the accounts of the office of the NSA before an FCT High Court sitting in Maitama, has been adjourned.
The adjournment followed the absence of both the prosecution and defence counsels in court when the matter was called for resumed hearing on Wednesday.
The trial judge, Hussein Baba-Yusuf, subsequently adjourned hearing till July 4th.
Although his lawyer was absent, Dasuki and his two co-accused – Shuaibu Salisu and Aminu Baba-Kusa –were present in court today.
A letter sent in by lead prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN) and read by the Justice Baba-Yusuf, informed the court that an appeal hearing on the matter at the Court of Appeal is scheduled for same date, and pleaded for the matter to be adjourned.
It would be recalled that the former NSA last week through his counsel, Mr. Joseph Daudu (SAN), filed a motion before Justice Baba-Yusuf to apply for a consolidation of charges the Federal Government filed against him over alleged diversion of over $2.1billion meant for procurement of arms and ammunition.
The prosecution, however, opposed the application describing it as a deliberate ploy by Mr. Dasuki to stall his trial.
