Olisa Metuh: Appeal court orders DSS to produce Dasuki in court

An Appeal Court in Abuja on Friday ordered the Department of State Services, DSS, to produce former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki(rtd) before a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The court said the order was to enable Dasuki testify in defence of a former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh.

The appellate Court has ordered the trial judge, Justice Okon Abang, of the Federal High Court, Abuja to immediately sign the subpoena filed by Metuh.

A unanimous judgment delivered by its three-man panel and read by Justice Peter Ige, also directed Justice Abang to indicate the date which DSS must produce Dasuki in court.

Metuh is currently facing trial before Justice Abang-led court for allegedly receiving N400m from the funds meant for the procurement of arms deals allegedly diverted from the Office of the NSA under the immediate past administration of Goodluck Jonathan.
