Dasuki, four others get bail

Former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, has been granted bail by a FCT High Court despite the argument by counsel of EFCC that it was too risky to grant him and others bail.

Dasuki is standing trial alongside Bashir Yuguda, former Minister of state for Finance and Shuaibu Salisu, former Director of Finance in the office of the NSA.

Also named as defendants in the case were former Governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Bafarawa, his son Sagir Attahiru and their company Dalhatu Investment Limited.

Justice Husseini Baba Yusuf granted bail ​to the accused persons in the sum of N250 million.
Dasuki, others must produce a surety each who must be a ​serving or retired ​civil servant ​not lower than the rank of a director.

The ​c​ivil servant must also show possession of a property within the FCT worth the same amount​, the judge ordered.​
