The detained former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki has said he could no long remember the details of his dealings with the former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, in 2014.
Speaking during the continuation of Metuh’s trial on Wednesday at the Federal High Court in Abuja, in court, Dasuki said he cannot recall if he had any dealings with Metuh or his company from his memory.
“If I had any dealings at it relates to this case. It is not possible that without refrences to my record I can say I had any dealings with them,” Dasuki told the court.
Dasuki and memory lane
When asked by the court to explain why Metuh and his company are being charged for receiving money from his office as NSA, Dasuki said it will be difficult to give any details on the issue of monies paid to them without references to his records.
“Three years is a long time to recall such. I cannot answer questions on the charges without consulting my records,” Dasuki said.
When he was then asked to tell the court when he will have access to his records, the former NSA said as soon as the authorities decide to obey four subsisting orders for bail in his favour and one ECOWAS court ruling and release him from the hole he is in, that is when he will be able to give a timeline.
“But as long as I am in detention the answer is I don’t know,” Dasuki said.
