The trial of the former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki, retired, on alleged corruption charges was aborted by the refusal of the Federal Government to produce him in Court.
The trial slated for the FCT High Court, Abuja could not go on after the Judge and Senior lawyers waited for over three hours without Dasuki being brought to Court as agreed at the last Court sitting.
Colonel Dasuki, who has been granted bail by four different Judges in the last two years has remained in the custody of Department of State Services without detention warrant and in disobedient to the Court orders on bail.
Prosecution counsel, Mr. Rotimi Jacob told Justice Baba Yusuf that he was surprised that the former NSA was not within the Court premises for the continuation of his trial but however declined to give reasons why the defendant was not produced.
However, Counsel to Colonel Dasuki, Mr. Joseph Daudu faulted the statement of the prosecution counsel and demanded to know the whereabout of his client.
