The immediate past National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), has filed a fresh application asking a Federal Capital Territory High Court in Maitama to discharge him for the alleged crime of diversion of funds said to be meant for the procurement of arms.
The ex-NSA, through his lawyer, Mr. Joseph Daudu (SAN), filed the application dated January 11, 2016, before Justice Peter Affen, urging the court to bar the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission from prosecuting him.
The ex-NSA contended that the EFCC which is prosecuting him and other co-accused persons in the name of the Federal Republic of Nigeria could not continue to prosecute him after a “brazen disobedience” of orders of the court granting him bail on December 21, 2015.
