A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Monday set Tuesday, November 3, 2015, for ruling on an application for the release of the international passport of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, to enable him travel abroad for medical treatment.
Mr. Dasuki is standing trial on a five-count charge bordering on illegal possession of firearms and possession of amounts of local and foreign currency in his residence contrary to Money Laundering Act.
The former NSA was first charged on Monday August 24, 2015 on a one-count charge of illegal possession of firearms, before the government added fresh charge of money laundering.
He was immediately granted bail on self recognition while the trial judge, Adeniyi Ademola, ordered the Department of State Security Services to submit Mr. Dasuki’s passport, which it had seized, to the court registrar.
