Embattled former National
Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, told the court today that he is being punished
by the powers that be for the perceived offences committed long before.
Speaking through his counsel, Joseph Daodu (SAN), Dasuki said he leaves
everything for God almighty to judge.
“It is crystal clear that the
defendant (Dasuki) is being punished by the powers that be for the perceived
offences committed long before… we leave them to the Almighty God for his
ultimate judgment,” he said
The former NSA said this at the
hearing of an application filed by the Federal government that witnesses lined
up to testify against Dasuki should be allowed to do so behind a smoked screen.
According to counsel to the
Federal government, Dipo Okpeseyi (SAN), Dasuki has large loyalists across the
country who may jeopardize the trial if the witnesses are allowed to testify
