Trial of Ex-Nigeria Security Adviser Adjourned on Lawyer Access

A corruption case against former Nigerian National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki was adjourned until May 3 after the Federal High Court in the capital, Abuja, ruled that Dasuki must be allowed access to his lawyers.

Dasuki’s lawyer, Joseph Daudu, told the court he hasn’t been allowed access to his client, who is facing charges of money laundering and criminal breach of trust related to the alleged misappropriation of $2.1 billion meant for weapons procurement in the fight against the Islamist militant group Boko Haram.

“If a complaint like this is made, the court must listen to it,” Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf said.
