BREAKING: Court orders FG to release Dasuki’s international passport

Justice Ademola Adeniyi-led Federal High Court, Abuja, has ordered the Federal government to release the international passport of the immediate past National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki in order for him to seek medical treatment abroad.

The Federal Government, yesterday, opposed an application by the former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd), to be allowed to travel abroad for medical treatment.

Dasuki, who is facing a five-count charge bordering on alleged illegal possession of firearms and money laundering, is seeking the permission of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to go for three weeks medical check-up outside the country.

In the application he moved through his lawyer, Mr. J. B. Daudu (SAN), yesterday, Dasuki urged trial Justice Ademola Adeniyi to order the release of the travelling documents he surrendered to the Deputy Chief Registrar of the High Court.

It will be recalled that the court had on September 1, granted the embattled former NSA bail on self-recognition after he deposited his international passport.

Meanwhile, Daudu, yesterday, told the court that his client was suffering from a sickness that would require attention of his medical doctors abroad, pledging that the passport would be returned to the court after the three weeks treatment period.

Besides, Daudu stressed, the accused person ought to be presumed innocent despite the criminal charges against him.
