ECOWAS court orders FG to pay N15m to former NSA, Sambo Dasuki, for unlawfully arresting him

The Court of the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, has ruled against the arrest and continued detention of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, describing it as unlawful and arbitrary.

Delivering judgement today in a suit filed by Dasuki, the court ruled that the further arrest of Dasuki by security agents on November 4th last year after he was granted bail by a court of law, amounts to a mockery of democracy and the rule of law.

Dasuki who is currently being tried for allegedly squandering $2.1 billion arms deal fund during the last administration, had dragged the Federal government before the court to seek redress over his arrest and continued detention despite meeting his bail conditions. The court in its ruling today, ordered the Federal government to pay N15 million to Dasuki as damages

Now the truth is coming out,God is on the side of the PDP...Buhari forgot the world is watching and this is no civil war era...he assumed office and showcased the natural hausa enemity..wickedness..illiteracy and ignorance..now the country is in chaos..in his 75yrs old brain,he tot he was ruling

Mtchewwww! Is it a court of competent jurisdiction? That ruling means nothing...

Nuria Precious said...

Only if this wicked, revengefull and heartless man buhari will respect the rule of law for once and let this man be. The only sin he committed was to obey his superior which he buhari as a military man knows the repercussion if he dares disobeys. Arms deal my foot.

I do not support corruption in any way but this verdict is a slap on Buhari's face. At least he now knows that the enormous power which he abuses in office could be challenged. I won't be surprised if he moves for Nigeria to pull out of ECOWAS membership so that no one can challenge him.

I laugh this man Buhari who is wasting our time...

Who is ECOWAS to dictate to Nigeria on what to do? Abeg they should face their countries and leave Nigeria alone. When Buhari was in prison for 3 years unlawfully after a coup was plotted against him that led to his removal as head of state, why didnt ECOWAS fight for him? When Obasanjo was detained for several years, who fought for him to be released? They should mind their business

Will buhari obey this ruling?

@anon5:53 I bet u re a stunt illetrate,let me enlighten u small,ECOWAS is economic community of west African states in oda words dey over see de affairs of de countries in West Africa n not a country of its own so receive brain, if Buhari was unlawfully locked in which Dasuki carried out an order,he should wait for military regime not using de office he was voted for to revenge Smone dat obeyed an order which he is aware of, God knows aw many pple he locked too back dem,one of de reason dis country can't grow is dat he thinks of nothing else dan revenge.

PDP has gone to bribe ECOWAS. Who was the lawyer that stood on behalf of the federal govt during the judgement? Have they bothered to ask the federal govt what Dasuki did? A lot of people died because of Dasuki. He diverted the money to buy weapons to fight boko haram. He build many houses in Abuja for himself with the money. ECOWAS should ask questions before given stupid judgement. I trust Buhari. He will just ignore them or break out of ECOWAS just like Britain broke away from EU. Them never see anything yet. Smtcheew
