Dasuki Objects To Secret Trial

The formerĀ National Security Adviser (NSA), Colonel Sambo Dasuki (Rtd), has objected an appeal for a secret trialĀ in the criminal charges of unlawful possession of firearms and money laundering preferred against him.

At the resumed trial of Colonel Dasuki on Monday, the Federal Government (FG) applied to a Federal High Court in Abuja for a secret trial while also filing additional four fresh charges against the former NSA.

The charges now include alleged retention of funds which formed part of the proceeds of an unlawful act of money laundering for which the former NSA pleaded not guilty.

Besides the appeal for a secret trial, the FG is also seeking witness protection for all its witness in the suit.
