Federal High Court Grants Former NSA, Sambo Dasuki N200m Bail

Describing Dasuki’s continuous detention as an aberration to the rule of law, the Abuja division of the High Court granted him N200 million and two sureties in like sum.

The presiding judge said the sureties must not be lower than grade sixteen (16) in the civil service and where they are private citizens, they must be owners of landed properties in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

In October 2017, Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, ordered the Prosecution to persuade the DSS to produce detained Dasuki in court October 31 to testify in Olisa Metuh’s trial.

Recall that seeking an order setting aside the subpoena directing him to appear in court to testify as a witness in defence of the former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, re-arraigned the quartet of Colonel Nicholas Ashinze, a former special assistant to the embattled Dasuki, an Austrian, Wolfgang Reinl; Edidiong Idiong and Sagir D. Mohammed before Justice Babatunde Quadri of the Federal High Court, sitting in Maitama, Abuja, on a 13-count charge of corruption and money laundering to the tune of N3.6billion.
