Again! Court of Appeal Grants Dasuki Bail
The former National Security Adviser(NSA), Dasuki Sambo has been granted bail again by the Court of Appeal.
Court of Appeal also ordered the Nigerian Government to pay him N5million for violating his freedom of movement.
According to Premium Times, a lawyer with the Chambers of Dasuki’s lead Counsel, Ahmed Raji confirmed the ruling and said application was filled at the Court of Appeal to challenge the excessive bail conditions.
Adeola Adedipe, the lawyer who had filed the application said:
Yes, it’s true. You know he had been granted bail several times by high courts and the bail conditions were excessive. Yet even after meeting the conditions, he was not released on bail.
Mr Adeola also revealed that the previous bail of N100 million cash was paid but the government still did not release him.
He added that by the latest court order,
The N100 million noted by the court would be a bond, not a cash sum like the previous one.
According to the ‘enrolled order’ which was seen by Premium Times, Dasuki and his lawyers approached the appellate court on June 13.
Dasuki Sambo has been on detention since December 2015 over alleged embezzlement of funds meant for the war against terrorism.
