Dasuki reportedly ill as FG fails to produce him in court

The prosecution of former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) in the alleged $2.1b arms deal​ ​was on Friday stalled at the Abuja High Court due to the absence of the trial Judge, Justice Hussein Baba Yusuf.

However, the federal government failed to produce Dasuki fuelling reports that Dasuki was not in good shape.

Justice Baba-Yusuf was said to have gone outside Abuja on an​ ​official assignment.

He was part of the Federal Capital Territory Judiciary delegation attending the burial ceremony of Justice Victoria Ayodele Uzo-Amaka Onejeme, a pioneer Judge of the Abuja High court, who died recently.

DAILY POST gathered that lawyers, family members, associates and​ ​sympathizers of the ex-NSA who had stormed the court hoping to see him left disappointed.

Dasuki has remained in detention​ ​of the Department of the State Services (DSS) since November 2015 when he was arrested,​ ​despite​ ​bails granted him by four different High Courts and the order of release by ECOWAS Court.

Other defendants in the alleged corruption case included a former Minister of State for Finance Bashir Yuguda, former Sokoto State governor Alhaji Attahiru​ ​Bafarawa, his son sagir Bafarawa, former Director of Finance in the office of the NSA Salisu Shuaibu and Dalhatu Investment Ltd who were present in court.

Eminent​ l​awyers in the case, including Chief Olajide Ayodele SAN, Dr. Kayode Olatoke SAN and Mr. Akeem Afolabi SAN among others left the court room around 11am when information filtered to them that the trial will not proceed.

However, after consultation with each other, the lawyers and court officials shifted the prosecution till September 27 due to the coming yearly vacation of the court scheduled to begin on July 10 and terminate in the middle of September.
