Metuh: Dasuki appears in court, pleads loss of memory


Former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki has appeared in the trial of former PDP spokesman, Olisa Metuh before a Federal High Court in Abuja.

However, Dasuki's counsel, Ahmed Raji (SAN) has opposed his testifying today due to loss of memory following his two years of incarceration.

He said the evidence to be given, is only a small aspect of his tenure as NSA, adding that he does not have "access to relevant files, records and documents required to refresh his memory of any decisions or actions he took or authorised in the course of his duties."

Raji asked Justice Okon Abang to "tarry a while" in proceeding in the matter pending the determination of the appeal before the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

Metuh's counsel, Emeka Etiaba (SAN) agreed with Raji that the former NSA need additional time to access his documents to be able to testify in all the courts he is facing charges.

Daily Trust reported on Tuesday that EFCC Counsel, Sylvanus Tahir read out a text message from the Director of Legal in the Department of State Services (DSS) that Dasuki, who initially did not want to testify in the trial, has accepted to testify.
