ECOWAS gives Buhari 24hrs to explain why Dasuki is still in custody


The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Court has demanded an explanation for the continued Detention of former National Security Adviser (NSA) Colonel Mohammed Sambo Dasuki (rtd), since December 2015.

The court, headed by presiding judge Justice Friday Chijioke Nwoke, also gave the Federal Government a day to justify Dasuki’s Detention.

According to Justice Nwoke, “having listened to parties in this matter and the parties having filed and put all necessary documents and exhibits at the disposal of this court and having granted accelerated hearing in this matter, it is in the interest of justice that this case must be expeditiously dealt with.”

“In this regard, the plaintiff is hereby ordered to make out his case on Wednesday, May 18 and the defendant to ventilate its defense the following day, May 19 after which we will adjourn for judgment.”
