The trial of former National Security Adviser, retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki, continues despite being granted bail by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

 

Dasuki is also facing charges before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory over alleged misappropriation of security funds, which is separate from the case for which he was granted bail by Justice Ojukwu.

 

However; the trial at the Abuja High Court has been put off due to the inability of the Federal Government to file the list of exhibits it expects to tender against Dasuki as required by law.

 

 

Following the development; the defence counsel, Adeola Adedipe raised an objection against the continued trial of his client on the ground that the prosecution team led by Rotimi Jacobs has not complied with some provisions of the law.

 

Adedipe informed Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf that without the list of exhibits, he has not been able to prepare his defence in compliance with the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.

 

In his ruling; Justice Baba-Yusuf upheld the objection by the Defence counsel and directed that the process of law must be complied with in the interest of justice and fair play.

 

The court, therefore, adjourned the trial to 27th and 28th September as well as 8th and 9th October, for the continuation of trial.

 

In the interim; the court ordered that all necessary processes must be filed and served on parties before the returned dates.
