 Dasuki Makes First Court Appearance After Release

The immediate-past former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, has made his first appearance in court after release from a from four-year-long detention.

The ex-NSA on Thursday  appeared before Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Dasuki is standing trial for  charges of money laundering and illegal possession of firearms instituted against him in 2015 by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation.

There are two separate sets of charges of alleged diversion of funds earmarked for the procurement of arms meant for fighting Boko Haram in the North-East pending against him at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja.

But none of the two other cases had come up since December 24, 2019, when he was released from the custody of the Department of State Services.

The ex-NSA was kept in detention for a period of four years after arrest , in spite of the bail granted him on numerous occasions by various courts.

The judge adjourned trial till March 11 and 12.
