Dasuki’s Lawyer Pleads With Buhari

Counsel to embattled former National Security Adviser Dasuki Sambo, Ahmed Raji SAN, has appealed to President Buhari to allow his client go and enjoy the bail granted him by an Abuja High court on December 21st last year.

In an interview with Daily Trust, Raji said that he was too small to join words with the president.

“On the isolated case of my client- Sambo Dasuki, I plead with the President to allow him to enjoy his bail. I am too small to join words with the president of the country. I will only plead that he allows him to go on bail. In law, we have judicial review of administrative actions. We don’t have executive review of judicial decisions. That is why I would beg the president to allow all those that have been granted bail to go and enjoy it,” he said.

Dasuki who is standing trial for the misappropriation of $2.1 billion arms deal, was re-arrested immediately he met his bail condition last week.

During the presidential media chat last week Wednesday, president Buhari had suggested that the former NSA will not be released despite fulfilling his bail condition for fear of him running away and not facing the charges brought against him.
