$2.1 Billion Arms Deal Scandal: FG Produces Dasuki in Court

The Federal Government has produced former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (Rtd) in court.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola had ordered the Department of State Services to produce Colonel Dasuki before the court on Tuesday, after Colonel Dasuki failed to show up for trial on January 20, 2016.

Justice Ademola Adeniyi, in his order, said the court has not excused the former National Security Adviser from being present in court to face the criminal charges preferred against him by the Federal Government.

Colonel Dasuki is facing a 4-count charge of money laundering and illegal possession of firearms brought against him by the Department of State Services.

Trial judge, Adeniyi Ademola has, however, granted an adjournment based on the request of Dasuki’s counsel, Mr Joseph Daudu, who informed the court of a pending application he intends to argue.
