FG asks ECOWAS court to dismiss Sambo Dasuki’s suit



The Community Court of the Economic Community of West African States on Tuesday heard the Federal Government’s objection to the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by a former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) and fixed April 11 for ruling.
At the hearing of the government’s objection to the suit, the Federal Government urged the ECOWAS court to dismiss the suit for a lack of jurisdiction.
Dasuki was re-arrested on December 29, 2015, shortly after he was released from the Kuje Prison on bail.
He is being prosecuted on three separate sets of charges, some bordering on alleged diversion of funds meant for the procurement of arms.
In his suit, instituted by his counsel, Mr. Robert Emukpoeruo, the former NSA is asking the ECOWAS Court to declare as unlawful, unconstitutional and a breach of his fundamental right his arrest since last year without a lawful court order.
