A Federal Capital Territory, FCT High Court presided over by Justice Peter Affem has ordered that former National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd) should be remanded in Kuje prison pending when he meets the conditions of his bail.

Dasuki alongside Attahiru Bafarawa, former Sokoto State governor; Bashir Yuguda, former minister of state for finance, Shuaibu Salisu, and Sagir, Bafarawa’s son, were on Monday granted bail in the sum of N250 million each and were asked to provide two sureties in like sum as well as deposit their international passports at the court.

The judge, while granting the accused persons bail, held that: “bail was not about setting anybody free but the primary essence of bail is to ensure that the accused person attends trial”.

While adjourning the case till February 2 and 3 2016, Affem said the offences the accused persons were alleged to have committed were bailable.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had last Wednesday charged the accused persons on a 22-count of conspiracy, bribery, abuse of office and criminal breach of trust to the tune of N28 billion which they all pleaded not guilty to.

Meanwhile, Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf, of the FCT High Court on Friday granted Dasuki and five other persons bail in the sum of N250m each.

Dasuki alongside Salisu, a former director of finance and administration at the office of the national security adviser; Aminu Babakusa, a former general manager at the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC); Acacia Holdings Limited and Reliance Referral Hospital Limited were also arraigned by the ant-graft agency on a 19-count charge bordering on money laundering and criminal breach of trust to the tune of N13bn.
