Again, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has adjourned till January 20, 2016, hearing on fresh application filed by the Federal Government (FG), seeking stay of proceedings over Justice Adeniyi Ademola’s previous ruling, which granted the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. (rted) Sambo Dasuki permission to travel abroad, for medical treatment.
The Chief Security Adviser to the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan is currently being investigated over misappropriation of the sum of $2.1 Billion, the money earmarked to purchase arms for the Military to fight dreaded Boko Haram terrorists.
It would be recalled the FG through its Counsel, Mr. Oladipo Ogbeseyi last Thursday filed a fresh application praying the Court to stay proceedings in the ruling he delivered on November 3, which granted Dasuki permission to travel abroad for medical treatment and subsequently ordered immediate release of his international passport, contending that the new application, “takes precedence over the earlier application.”
Counsel to Dasuki, Mr. Ahmed Raji however opposed the application and requested Justice Adeniyi Ademola to give his client short adjournment, prompting the jurist to shift hearing to Tuesday,. December 8, 2015.
At the hearing today, Dasuki’s Counsel again asked for adjournment to have enough time to study the defendant’s application.
The request was granted, prompting Justice Ademola to adjourn the next hearing till January, 2016.
