Dasuki

The Federal Government has added a charge of money laundering against the immediate past National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Mohammed Sambo Dasuki (rtd) at the Federal High Court (FHC) Abuja.

The prosecution counsel, Shuaib Labaran, at the resumed hearing on Monday, filed the fresh charge against Dasuki and also prayed the court to, amongst other things, grant its request for a secret trial, as well as masking the witnesses brought by the Department of State Services (DSS).

Labaran also accused the former NSA of possessing some cash which was found in his house, allegedly bordering on money laundering. But the defence counsel, Joseph Daudu (SAN), vehemently opposed the application on the grounds that the case is a harmless one within a democratic setting that does not warrant secret trial.

After hearing the arguments, the presiding Judge, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, fixed Wednesday, October 28, 2015, for ruling.
