Dasuki’s Corruption Trial Stalled

The trial of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, was on Wednesday adjourned following a request by counsel to one of the defendants, Salisu Shuaibu. Mr. Shuaibu’s lawyer, Adetayo Adeyemi, told the court that his client could not make it to court because he was ill and had been hospitalised. Mr. Shuaibu is one of the accused in the two separate charges being heard at an Abuja High Court, under Justice Hussein Baba.
Mr. Dasuki (first defendant), alongside Mr. Shuaibu; Aminu Kusa, a former General Manager, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation; Acacia Holdings Limited and Reliance Referral Hospital Limited are being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on a 19-count charge of MONEY laundering and criminal breach of trust to the tune of N13.6 billion. In the second case under the same judge, Mr. Dasuki, Mr. Kusa and Mr. Shuaibu, among others are facing a 22-count charge for alleged diversion of N32 billion. Both charges were brought under the same judge, in response to a request by the defence.
