I’m ready to continue my trial – Dasuki


Former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, says he is ready to continue his trial in the money laundering case against him.

The ex-NSA said this in an interview with the Hausa Service of the Voice of America, in Abuja, on Wednesday.

After the DSS severally disobeyed court orders granting him bail, Dasuki wrote a letter to the Federal High Court in Abuja, dated November 12, 2018, stated that he would stop appearing in court for his trial pending when the Federal Government would release him from the custody of the DSS.

In the interview with VOA,  Dasuki said,  he is prepared to appear in court to answer charges levelled against him, since he has been released.

“I was going to court. Why I stopped going to court was because the court ordered for my release. This was not obeyed. So, I said, anytime the government released me, we would continue with the case. I am ready.”

Dasuki was arrested for alleged illegal possession of firearms and money laundering in December 2015, and was released from detention on Tuesday, after four years in the custody of the DSS.

Dasuki had pleaded not guilty to the charges of illegal possession of firearms, and money laundering among others, in 2015, and its yet unclear if he would be withdrawing his plea.
