The Federal Government has filed money laundering charges against former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki. This is in addition to the charge of illegal arms possession which Dasuki is already facing.
The FG also requested through its counsel, Shuaib Labaran, that the trial be conducted in secret and that witnesses who will be brought in by the Department of State Services should be masked.
Dasuki’s counsel, Joseph Daudu (SAN), opposed the application of a secret trial, arguing that the case is a harmless one within a democratic setting. The presiding Judge, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, of the Federal High Court (FHC) Abuja today October 26th,
adjourned the case to Wednesday October 28th for ruling.
