Court Adjourns Dasuki’s Case Till November 23

Sambo Dasuki

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday moved the case of the former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, a retired Colonel, to November 23 following the absence of the Attorney General of the
Federation in court.

At the hearing, the Judge, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, ordered the adjournment after considering an oral application for adjournment by the Solicitor General of the Federation, Taiwo Abidogun, which was not opposed by Dasuki’s counsel.



    Abidogun told the court that the Attorney General of the Federation needed time to study the case file, having just being sworn in as the Attorney General and Minister of Justice.

    The former NSA is requesting an enforcement of an order by a Federal High Court granting him
    permission to travel overseas for medical treatment.

    Last Friday, court had ordered that the Attorney General appear before it today to explain why the
    order of the court granting permission to the former NSA to travel was being flouted.

    But despite the court’s order, officials of the Department of State Service, DSS have sustained siege to Dasuki’s residence, preventing him from travelling.
