The Trial Of Sambo Dasuki Will Continue – Justice Ahmed Mohammed
Written by darling on November 20, 2018
The trial of the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki will continue as the Judge Justice Ahmed Mohammed, says he has not given any tangible reason to warrant his absence in court.
The court’s decision followed an application by the prosecutor Dipo Okpeseyi who had asked the court to either stand down the latter and order the appearance of the defendant or make an order to continue the trial in his absence.
The application was rejected by the counsel to Dasuki who told the court that the application before the court was not properly filed and that the court ought to also give the defendant an opportunity to explain himself.
Having listened to both parties, the trial judge held that the application was properly filed in response to the order made by the court on April 16th and November 13th, that should the former NSA not attend the trial, the prosecution is at liberty to apply for a trail in his absence.
