A new charge of money laundering has been added by the Federal Government against the immediate past National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Mohammed Sambo Dasuki (rtd) who is undergoing trial at the Federal High Court, FHC, Abuja.
At the resumed hearing on Monday, the prosecution counsel, Shuaib Labaran, filed the fresh charge against Dasuki and also prayed the court to among other things grant its request for a secret trial, as well as masking the witnesses presented by the Department of State Services, DSS.
Labaran accused the former NSA of possessing some cash which was found in his house, allegedly bordering on money laundering.
In his reaction, the Defence counsel, Joseph Daudu, SAN, vehemently opposed the application on the grounds that the case is a harmless one within a democratic setting that does not warrant secret trial.
After hearing the arguments, the presiding Judge, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, fixed Wednesday, October 28, 2015, as date for ruling.
