A Federal Capital Territory (FTC) High Court, Maitama, on Monday adjourned a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki’s, motion for consolidation of two cases against him to October 5. Dasuki, Shuaibu Salisu, a former Director of Finance, Office of the NSA, and Aminu Baba-Kusa, a former Executive Director at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) were arraigned for alleged diversion of N13.6 billion.
Also being tried were two firms – Acacia Holding Limited and Reliance Referral Hospital Limited. At the last sitting, the motion was not moved due to the absence of Salisu’s counsel, Chief Akin Olujimi (SAN).
Dasuki’s counsel, Mr. Joseph Daudu (SAN) and Mr. Solomon Umoh (SAN), Counsel to Baba-Kusa, had said the motion should be moved in the presence of Olujimi.
