Court Grants Dasuki N200m Bail

Posted by on July 2nd, 2018



The Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday
granted bail to the immediate-past National
Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd),
from the custody of the Department of State
Service where he had been detained for two
and a half years.
Delivering judgment in the suit filed by the ex-
NSA in March this year, Justice Ijeoma
Ojukwu ruled that his detention since
December 29, 2015, amounted to a violation
of his right to liberty.
The judge, who rejected the ex-NSA’s prayer
for N5bn damages granted him bail in the sum
of N200m with two sureties who must either
be a civil servant of a minimum of Grade
Level 16 in the Federal Civil Service or private
citizens who have landed properties in the
municipal areas of Abuja.
She ruled that the Federal Government’s
contention that Dasuki was being kept in
custody on the grounds of his alleged threat
to national security and his alleged ongoing
investigation for money laundering did not
warrant “abrogating his right”.
In granting him bail, the judge said should
there be any further reason to interrogate him,
DSS could only invite and interview him
between the hours of 9am and 6pm on
working days.
This judgment came about one year and nine
months after the Economic Community of
West African States Court of Justice on
October 4, 2016, ordered his release from
illegal custody but which the DSS had not
