Nigeria: Court Grants Dasuki Bail

Embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki has been granted bail by an Abuja Federal High Court. In her ruling, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu stated that it was illegal for the defendant to have been held without trial as this violated his fundamental human right.

He was therefore granted bail on the following conditions:

* His international passport is to remain with the court.
* The defendant is to offer a bail bond of N200 million.
* He is to provide two other sureties who will stand for the same amount.
* Sureties must own landed properties in Abuja, original titles to which must be deposited with the court.
* Sureties must be public servants of no less than Grade Level 16 and must provide evidence of last promotion.
* If however the sureties are not public servants, they must deposit the sum of N100 million in the court’s bank account.

Though he has again been granted bail, it is not yet clear if the government will obey the court’s ruling.
