Former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki is not ready for the continuation of his trial on charges of corruption.

This was disclosed by Dasuki’s lawyer, Joseph Daudu, during an appearance before the Federal High Court in Abuja today, February 16, 2016.

Daudu said further that his client wouldn’t be ready for trial till the federal government complies with a court order granting him bail.

“We cannot be ready for trial until the defendant enjoys his constitutional rights,” Daudu said.

“We apply that we should be given time to prepare the defence. The conduct of the prosecution has not enabled him to enjoy his constitutional rights. The worst is that for about seven weeks we do not know where he is.

“Any of us here who proceeds to defend an accused person in this circumstance may lose his license to practice,” he added.

Dasuki had been granted bail by Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the same court in November 2015 but was rearrested by the Department of State Services (DSS).

The case has been adjourned to March 3.
