Judge says EFCC hasn't erred in detaining Dasuki after meeting bail conditions

Justice Husseini Baba of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Maitama, Abuja, yesterday February 8th, said the Federal government and operatives of the EFCC have not in anyway violated court order following his continued detention even after meeting his bail condition.

At the hearing of an application by Dasuki asking the court to stop DSS from detaining him, the presiding judge, Justice Baba, said his continued detention by DSS is not in anyway a contempt of court proceeding as he was arrested on fresh charges by the DSS the day he fulfilled his bail condition in December 2015


“At the end, it is my view that the application filed on behalf of the first defendant does not have any merit and I hold so. I therefore dismiss same. From paragraphs 6 and 7 of affidavit in support of this application, it is clear that after the first defendant/applicant satisfied the terms in Exhibit ‘Dasuki 2’ he was released from Federal prisons on December 29, 2015 at this point the order of the court, as far as I am concerned, which was directed at the Comptroller of Prisons, was in my view complied with. If the EFCC re-arrested the first defendant thereafter, it makes, subject to the circumstances of such arrest, an interference with due administration of justice but it cannot be a disobedience to the order of the court to release the applicant on bail. The reason is because in making the order of bail in favour of the first defendant, this court did not make any order against a re-arrest.”he said
The judge ruled that since it had been confirmed that Dasuki was being held by the Department of State Services, DSS, which “is a stranger” in the case, the EFCC which is prosecuting Dasuki and his co-accused could not be said to have violated the bail order. Dasuki is being tried for misappropriation of $2.1 billion arms deal.

Linda, Queen of misinformation. The judge said EFCC hasn't erred because he is not in EFCC detention. He currently held by the DSS on other charges. Your headline is so misleading. Pls be professional in your reportage.

Another heavy lie from incompetent judge so that it won't look as if terrorist buhari have hands in it but wise people like freeborn knows that they are working under the instruction of terrorist buhari.
They should release this innocence man that buhari is punish because of his arrest in 1985.

Dasuki that shared $2.1b arms deal money...killing souls plus our economy. make efcc hold him in their closet

Nigeria for you, where a yahoo boy defrauds a white man of 30k usd online and will be jailed for 24years, then DANSUKI after defrauding the entire country of $2.1B USD, he was granted bail for 300m USD. Nigeria have a long way to go.
I don't think this is the change we are looking for.

OMIDAN ABBY said...

The truth about this whole Dasuki ish remains that he might not have freedom until Buhari is done with his tenure cos he's serving a pay back time of wat he's done to Buhari as far bk as Babangida's regime..
Will only seat bk, relax and watch this as everyday passes by..
I rest my case..

The court has spoken. PDP always tell lie to mislead the public. The court has cleared the air now. Useless party of liars and crooks

Anonymous said...

Linda ,that was not the ruling,I covered that case.What the judge said was that The DSS is not a party to the suit ,so it cannot be charged with contempt ,even though ,it arrested Dasuki.As for the efcc ,the court said there is no materialDA evidence before the court ,saying it is the agency that arrested DauUki.
