April 20, 2016 – Sambo Dasuki Secret Trial Rejected: Court Bans Witnesses From Wearing Face Mask

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja yesterday turned down the request by the Federal Government to conduct secret trial of former National security Adviser, Colonel Muhammad Sambo Dasuki (rtd) in the charges of unlawful possession of firearm and money laundering brought against him in September 2015.

The court held that there was no need for the proposed witnesses to give their evidence under masked with pseudo names and addresses for the purpose of facilitating their protection as requested by government.

Besides, Justice Ademola further held that the Federal Government had in the charge against Dasuki listed the names and addresses of 11 witnesses to be called to testify against him and made same available to the general public and as such there was no basis for any hide and seek game in the trial.

In the application that was rejected, government had also requested the court to exclude members of the public except lawyers involved in the trial and accredited journalists.

Justice Ademola said there was no basis to grant the request of government to make the witnesses wear special mask, bear pseudo names and addresses because the charges were not terrorism charges and that there was no information that the life of any of the witnesses billed to be called was being threatened by anybody of group.
