In the hearing on the case against Col Sambo Dasuki, an Abuja Federal Government High Court has granted the former National Security Adviser bail.
This will be the sixth time Col Sambo Dasuki would be granted bail by the court and the previous ones had gone without compliance by the Federal government.
According to media reports, the trial judge, Justice Ojukwu, described the continuous detention of the Dasuki for the last two and half years as ‘an aberration to the rule of law and the contrition’. Consequently, she granted the former NSA bail in the sum of N200 million and two sureties.
She said the sureties must not be lower than grade 16 in the civil service and they must be owners of landed properties in Asokoro, Maitama, Utako or Garki area of Abuja. They are also expected to pay a sum of 100 million as bail guarantee into the court litigation account.
