Dasuki Files New Application To Stop Trial

The embattled National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), has filed a fresh application to stop his trial for charges of alleged diversion of about $2.1bn, part of funds meant for procurement of arms, before Justice Baba Yusuf of a Federal Capital Territory High Court in Maitama, Abuja.

The judge, however, on Thursday, fixed Friday, 22nd of Dec., 2016 for the commencement of trial of Dasuki and his other co-accused.

Others who were on December 14, 2015 arraigned along with Dasuki on the same set of 19 counts are a former Director of Finance and Administration in the Office of the NSA, Shuaibu Salisu, and a former Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Aminu Baba-Kusa.

  1. Why should his trial be stopped. A trial of a wicked man like this who allowed boko haram kill and abduct hundreds of children should never be stopped. May God forgive his lawyers
