The Court of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has instructed the Federal Government to release former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

The ECOWAS court also ordered the government to pay the sum of N15 million as damages to Dasuki.

Dasuki was initially arrested on December 1, 2015, after being accused of supervising the $2 billion arms deal fraud.
