Metuh’s Trial: Dasuki Finally Appears In Court As Witness
The embattled former National Security Adviser, Col.Sambo Dasuki (RETD) finally appeared before the Federal High Court, Abuja as a witness in the trial of the former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh.
The court presided over by Justice Oko Abang had given subpoena against Dasuki and former President Goodluck Jonathan to appear as witnesses in a N400 billion alleged fraud by Metuh.
The Department of State Services who had been keeping Dasuki, however, failed to produce him in the court, saying that the former NSA refused to be brought to the court.
While Jonathan had filed a suit requesting for N1 billion from Metuh before he could appear as a witness, the DSS eventually produced Dasuki on Wednesday in a case that began 9am.
Earlier on Tuesday Metuh’s lawyers had requested that the court issued an order to arrest the Director-General of the DSS, Lawal Daura, for failing to produce Dasuki in court.
But the counsel prosecuting Metuh and his company, Destra Investments Limited on behalf of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr Sylvanus Tahir, had informed the court on Tuesday that the Legal Adviser of DSS informed him over the telephone that Dasuki refused to be brought to court except by force.
However, the tension was subsided as Dasuki showed up in light blue kaftan with light blue cap on Wednesday.
