The Nigerian government on Tuesday arraigned before a court the former National Security Adviser (NSA) Mohammed Sambo Dasuki on charge of illegal possession of arms.
The Prosecution Counsel, Mohammed Diri, told a Federal High Court in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city that during a search on the accused person’s resident on July 16, the items were found in his possession.
Dasuki pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola granted Dasuki bail on self-recognition, after he pleaded not guilty.
However, the judge directed Dasuki to submit his passport to the Deputy Chief Registrar of the court.
The court adjourned the case till Oct. 26 and 27 for hearing. Enditem
