FG Explains Why It Is Yet To Release Dasuki Despite ECOWAS Court Ruling

The Federal Government said yesterday it did not immediately comply with the judgement of an ECOWAS Court to release former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki, retd, because of the need to study the document.

According to Vanguard, the government also yesterday moved to consolidate the charges against Dasuki, barely 24 hours after the ECOWAS Court judgement

Salihu Isah, Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami, SAN, who disclosed this in a statement in Abuja, said the government needed to fully understand the content of the court’s proceedings and judgement before reacting.

“We cannot just react. We will first of all study the judgement to understand its content before taking a stand,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government yesterday moved to consolidate charges against the former NSA,

seeking leave of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, to merge separate criminal charges it preferred against Dasuki before two judges of the court.

To that effect, the government yesterday persuaded trial Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf, who is trying Dasuki on a 19-count charge bordering on alleged N32billion fraud, to defer further proceeding on the matter till October 21.

The request was to enable the prosecuting counsel, Mr. Rotimi Jacobs, SAN, and Dasuki’s lawyers, to have a meeting with the Chief Judge of the FCT High Court, Justice Ishaq Bello, with a view to harmonising modalities for the proposed consolidation.
