Dasuki’s Trial Stalled Again, Adjourned Till Feb. 26

Once again, the trial of the immediate past National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), was put off till February 26, due to inability of the prosecutors to produce Dasuki in court.
Dasuki and his co-defendants are facing trial for alleged diversion of N13bn, part of funds said to be meant for procurement of arms.
The case before Justice Peter Affen of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Maitama, Abuja, Tuesday could not continue due to the failure of the operatives of the Department of State Service to produce the ex-NSA in court ‎on time and the need for the other co-defendants to respond to an application by Dasuki to stop the trial.
The former NSA was brought to court at the point when Justice Affen was adjourning the case.
Others who are being prosecuted along with the former NSA with respect to the 22 counts of N13bn fraud charges are a former Director of Finance and Administration in the Office of the NSA, Shuaibu Salisu, a former Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda; a former Governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Bafarawa, the ex-governor’s son, Sagir Attahiru, and a firm, Dalhatu Investment.
