A former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, has arrived a Federal High Court to testify as a defence witness in the ongoing trial of former spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh.

Mr. Dasuki’s appearance followed an order of the Federal High Court for a subpoena to be issued on him, through the directorate of the State Security Service, SSS.

Mr. Dasuki has been in the custody of the SSS for over a year despite court orders for his release. He is being prosecuted separately for alleged mismanagement of funds while in office.

The Federal High Court’s directive for the SSS to present him in court was also in obedience to a September 29 directive of the Appeal Court.

    …Only a f00l will think this guy is actually in prison. This guy was just flown into the country and after today he will return to wherever he is having his holiday..

    • MilitaryPolice01 [Joint Chief]

      Lol Dasuki is not in prison but he is equally not out of the country. You have a point though, he can’t be treated like the others being a blue blooded caliphate prince, those in power know the invisible line they cannot cross.

      I dont think he is abroad if not he will never come back no matter who asks him to….this one is just being treated better especially when you have money to throw around…whatever the case may be he would have served a mandatory jail term with the form sentencing….who knows what judgement he may have eventually after 8 years in DSS custody?

      • Usher- Join The Revolution

        My point is that he might not actually be in custody as everyone thinks. Well my personal view though.

          “…….My point is that he might not actually be in custody as everyone thinks………”.

          I like how you used the right word “MIGHT” in advancing your baseless thoughts or narrative.

          You qualify as a very good propagandist.

            …You have the right to believe whatever you want to you imbec*le

      Only a f00l will think this guy is actually in prison.DSS CUSTODY IS NOT SAME AS PRISON

  • Fada4Life

    Why was GEJ not also in court the subpoena was issued for the two of them

  • Wale

    The guy is supposedly in “custody” of DSS.
    What that tells me is that, every now and then he sits around the grill with Mamman Daura the DSS chief for a round or two of suya eating get together.
    Compare him to those lawyers with “rags” on their heads, he wins hands down, he’s been living in a better environment than them.
