Appeal Court orders DSS to produce Dasuki in Court

0

A Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, on Friday, ordered the Department of State Service (DSS) to present detained former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd) in court.

The Court said the secret police must produce Dasuki before a Federal High Court in Abuja to enable him testify in defense of a former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh.

In a unanimous judgment delivered by a three-man panel of justices, the Appeal court also ordered the trial judge, Justice Okon Abang, of the Federal High Court, Abuja before whom Metuh is being prosecuted to immediately sign the subpoena filed by the ex-PDP Publicity Secretary.
Justice Peter Ige, who prepared and read the lead judgment, directed Justice Abang to indicate the date which the DSS must produce Dasuki in court and other subsequent dates.
The Appellate court upheld Metuh’s appeal and nullified the ruling delivered by Justice Abang on February 23, 2017, when the judge refused to grant Metuh’s application for a subpoena to be issued and served on Dasuki.
