Dasuki Makes Public Appearance In Court After A While In Detention (Photos
Sambo Dasuki makes public appearance in court after a long while in detention.
The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court on Tuesday fixed December 11 to hear a Motion on Notice filed by the anti-graft agency, EFCC, in the corruption trial of a former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, and Bashir Yuguda.
Both men are accused of misappropriating N19.4 billion arms funds.
The EFCC had charged Messrs Dasuki (first defendant) and Yuguda (second defendant) alongside former Governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Bafarawa (third defendant); his son, Sagir (fourth defendant) and his company, Dalhatu Investment Limited (fifth defendant).
They were charged on 25 counts bordering on criminal breach of trust and misappropriation of public funds to the tune N19.4 billion.
Recall that the Court of Appeal early this year, granted bail to the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
The court also ordered the federal government to pay Mr Dasuki N5 million for holding him against the provisions of section 35 (6) of the constitution which gives every Nigerian the right to free movement.
Mr Dasuki has been held by security operatives since December 2015 when he was arrested on allegations he diverted $2.1 billion from funds meant for the war against terrorism.
