The Department of State Services (DSS) on Wednesday finally produced the detained former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, in court.
This is in compliance with an order of the Federal High Court in Abuja, that the ex-NSA should appear as a witness in the ongoing trial of a former Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Olisa Metuh.
Dasuki was produced by DSS operatives ahead of the Wednesday’s proceedings.
He, is however yet to take the stand and this will be dependent on whether the court rules in favour of or against his motion seeking for a stay of proceedings pending his appeal before the appellate court.
His counsel at the moment is moving the said motion.
On December 1, 2015, Dasuki was arrested by the DSS for allegedly stealing $2bn and accused of awarding phantom contracts to buy 12 helicopters, four fighter jets, and ammunition meant for the Nigeria’s military campaign against Boko Haram Islamist militants
