The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered detained former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki to appear and testify in defence of a former National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.
The presiding judge, Okon Abang said the former NSA will take the stand and testify because by the court’s action it is only obeying the ruling of the appeal court which ordered it to make an order of subpoena to the DSS for the former NSA to testify.
He also said granting the application will go against the decision of the apellate court and because he is not a party to the suit, he cannot make application for an adjournment.
After dismissing the application, Abang ordered Dasuki to enter the witness box and testify.
The Advocate reported that the DSS had earlier today, November 1, produced Dasuki, in court in compliance with an order of the Federal High Court in Abuja, that the ex-NSA should appear as a witness in the ongoing trial of Metuh.
