Supreme Court adjourns Dasuki’s case to Jan 25

DSS finally produces Dasuki to testify in Metuh's trial

The Supreme Court in Thursday adjourned the hearing on the appeal filed by a former National Security Adviser (NSA) Colonel Sambo Dasuki (retd) to January 25, 2018.

Dasuki is challenging the Federal Government over his continued detention in spite of the fact that he has been granted bail by three different courts.

The ECOWAS court had also in October 2016, ordered for his immediately release from detention, an order the Nigerian government has so far refused to comply with.
