Dasuki, through his
team of lawyers led by a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association
, Mr. Joseph Daudu
, SAN, urged the court to not only discharge him, but to also prohibit the EFCC
from further prosecuting him over the instant case or any other charge, or even approaching any court in the country to seek any relief against him.
prayed the high court to stay further proceeding on the matter pending his
release from detention, contending that the action of the federal government against him was in contempt of a subsisting court order.
argued that the continued incarceration of his
client has greatly affected his
chance to prepare a formidable defence against all the criminal charges pending against him before different courts.
told the court the erstwhile NSA was on December 29, re-arrested by security operatives, immediately he
was released by prison authorities having fulfilled all the bail conditions.
