Dasuki drags FG to ECOWAS court, demands N500m damages

Following his continued detention despite meeting his bail conditions, former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, has filed a suit against the Federal Government before the ECOWAS Court in Abuja and is demanding payment of N500 million damages for alleged rights infringement.


In the suit filed by his lawyer, Robert Emukpoeruo, Dasuki asked the court to declare his continued detention as “unlawful, arbitrary and an egregious violation” of his human rights. Dasuki in the suit also asked the court to declare that the alleged invasion of his Abuja and Sokoto residences on July 16 and 17, 2015 and the “forceful and unlawful seizure” of his properties, “without any lawful order or warrant” constituted a gross violation of his fundamental rights and offended the country’s treaty obligations as a signatory to the listed legal instruments.

No date has been set for hearing of the suit. In a related development, Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court, Abuja yesterday ordered the Federal government to produce him in court on February 16th. Dasuki's lawyer, Joseph Daudu (SAN), told the court that his client was abducted by security agents six weeks ago to an unknown destination. He told Justice Ademola that since the ex-NSA was whisked away, all efforts by his family and his lawyers to access him had been scuttled. Justice Ademola said:
“I am worried that the accused is not here. I do not want to set a bad precedent. Except the court gives express order for the defendant not to be in court, the accused must be brought to court from wherever he is. The accused must be here because I am not sure if what I am doing right now in the absence of the accused is not an illegality. Government and whoever is concerned must endeavour to do the necessary thing. The accused having been formally charged in court, must be produced in court for trial on the appointed days in compliance with the provisions of the law,”

Dasuki’s trial has been fixed for February 16 and 17 before Justice Ademola

Genesis said...

Where is Dasuki getting his wrong advice from? It is only here in this country you people do all this nonsense. After stealing from the public coffers, you are the displaying arrogance and pride instead of being remorseful for what you've done. You know how people have lost their lives based on your actions? You made some people lose their bread winners and yet you have the guts. Your children are seeing you but you've made some fatherless. Shame on you.

Eddy Ogbunambala said...

Anonymous said...

Okay. I'm only thinking out loud. Whilst he'd be right to sue, but I think the amount he's claiming is too small. Say something like half the amount he's been accussed of diverting; so that if he's not acquited, he would be able to have something substantial to hold on to.

That means 500th is his own share from the arms deal money. The next thing now Metu will come out and sew FG for 400th. I don't like this. I was hoping all these corrupt people would be dealt with so others will learn from it. I wish FG had respected court orders. Let's see how it plays out in ECOWAS court anyways

Dasuki dont mind your lawyer that is deceiving you and using this opportunity to collect money from your hand. No court will listen to you because you are a thief. It is only in Nigeria that a thief will still be having mouth to go to court instead of burying his ugly head in shame.

Anonymous said...

Anonymous said...

I think Dasuki is doing the right thing, sue the FG.
Fighting corruption must be done through the appropriately laid down channels otherwise it will come back and haunt us. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The govt cannot resort to self help to punish corrupt persons.

Anonymous said...

The efcc have succeeded in finding/making dasuki guilty in the Court of public opinion. Fine you need to give the people the impression that your administration is performing. But still, we must not forget what is called due process and the rule of law. They are handling these matters in an over zealous manner not to add to it their high handedness. The funniest part is dasuki is still innocent until the court says otherwise. We should learn to be a little less emotional and way more objective and realistic about this subject. Anybody who is well familiar our laws will know that this administration is taking Nigeria back into judicial Banana Republic.

No matter how right or wrong your reason is, abuse of office is still a form of corruption. Heard rumors the minister for interior called kuje prison boss to instruct him on metuh's handcuffing a day to his appearance in court. There is propaganda going on bigger than all of us. Same old, same old for these people. We need light, roads, rail, safer air transport and all the good things promised not this vendetta laced anti corruption crusade .

The executive have no right to cleans the judiciary.
That cleaning can uproot the good and incorruptible ones who will safeguard the masses from executive and legislative oppression, leaving the country bare for tyranny.
