Sambo Dasuki, former National Security Adviser (NSA) again refused to appear in court for his trial on Wednesday.
At yesterday’s hearing, prosecuting counsel Rotimi Jacobs (SAN) said Dauski refused to come to the court because his lead counsel would be absent. The lawyer said he persuaded him to come but he said “unless you abduct me, I am not coming’’.
However, Mr Wale Balogun, holding brief for Mr Joseph Dauda (SAN), told the court that it was the duty of the prosecution to produce the first defendant in court.
Justice Husseni Baba-Yusuf adjourned till April 6 for continuation of hearing.
