8th December, 2015
A Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday adjourned hearing in the trial of former National Security Adviser (NSA), retired Col. Sambo Dasuki, till January 20, 2016.
Dasuki, the NSA during the administration of former President Goodlcuk Jonathan, is standing trial on allegations of illegal possession of firearms and money laundering.
He had pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola adjourned the case for hearing in the applications by the prosecution seeking to revoke the bail granted to Dasuki.
He said the court will also hear another application by the prosecution seeking to stop Dasuki from travelling abroad for medical attention.
Counsel to the defendant, Joseph Daudu (SAN), had told the court that he filed notice of preliminary objections to the two applications by the prosecution.
The prosecution counsel, Mr Oladipo Okpeseyi, said he had just been served with the notices of objection and would need time to reply to them.
