The former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) has been released after spending 3 years in detention. Dasuki met the bail conditions imposed on him by the Federal high Court Abuja and he has been released.
Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu granted bail to Dasuki in the sum of N200m with two sureties in like sum, ruled that “the long and continued detention” of the applicant since December 29, 2015, could not be justified.
Dasuki released on bail after 3 years in detention. The DSS release him in line with the order of the court after he has perfected his bail condition.
However the judge rejected Dasuki’s prayer for a public apology and an award of N5bn compensation, she rejected all the grounds canvassed by the three respondents to justify the ex-NSA’s continued detention.
