Dasuki, for mer National Security Adviser (NSA) to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has been in custody of the Department of the State Security Service (DSS) since December 2015.
But on Wednesday June 29, contrary to expectations of journalists, lawyers and other observers who were present at the regional court in Abuja, the much awaited judgment was said not to be ready and that a new date for the judgment would be communicated to lawyers when ready.
In the court action instituted by his counsel, Mr. Robert Emukpoeruo, Dasuki is asking the court to void his detention, seizure of his properties and to bar government from further keeping him in custody without a lawful court order.
According to him, government had put him on trial in three different high courts on corruption charges where he was granted bail but was rearrested after bail.
