A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory trying a former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, and others for alleged money laundering and criminal breach of trust, has adjourned its bail ruling till Friday.
Mr. Dasuki, who was arraigned before Justice Sani Yusuf, alongside a former director of finance at the office of the NSA, Shuaibu Salisu, and a former Group General Manager of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Aminu Kura, and two firms, Acacia Holdings Limited and Reliance Reference Hospital, had on Monday filed for bail after pleading not guilty to the 19-count charge preferred against them by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
After over two hours of arguments and counter-arguments from counsel to both parties, Mr. Yusuf adjourned bail ruling to Friday.
Mr. Dasuki will remain in EFCC custody.
