A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered the Federal Government to produce the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki in court on February 16 and 17, 2016 for trial.

Justice Ademola Adeniyi, in his order, said the court has not excused the former National Security Adviser (NSA) from being present in court to face the criminal charges preferred against him by the Federal Government.

At the resumed hearing of the case, Counsel to the Federal Government, Oladipo Okpeseyi, withdrew an application earlier filed by the government seeking to revoke the bail granted to Col. Dasuki.

Mr Okpeseyi, however, filed an application seeking protection of witnesses against the former NSA.

Lawyer to Col. Dasuki also announced plans to file an application seeking to discharge his client due to the inability of the prosecution to commence trial. (Channels TV)
