A Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday ordered the Department of State Services to allow a former National Security Adviser, retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki, to travel out of the country for medical treatment.
The erstwhile NSA, had approached the court praying for the enforcement of its earlier order of November 3 that he could travel for three weeks to seek medical assistance for his ailment.
In his verdict, Justice Ademola Adeniyi, insisted that Sambo must be allowed to travel without delay.
Ademola ruled: “Court order must be obeyed. What is wrong in the defendant travelling and coming back to face trial?
“Only a fit person can stand for trial and investigation. My own orders will not be flouted.”
