Just In: Sambo Dansuki and Omoyele sowore has been Released
In a completely surprising move, Nigeria’s government on Tuesday ordered the release of former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki and convener of #RevolutionNow protest Omoyele Sowore.
The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami made this public in a statement on Tuesday. Dasuki has been in detention since June 2015, while Sowore was arrested on 3 August. There was no word on Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, who has also been in detention since December 2015.
Dasuki, the first person to be incarcerated, was arrested over a multi-billion dollar and naira slush funds that emanated from his office as National Security Adviser. The money meant to prosecute the insurgency in the country and equip the military ended up in politicians’ pockets for matters unrelated to security.
There are many ongoing cases over the fund.
Malami said the decision to release Dasuki and Sowore was in compliance with the bails granted the two by the court.
“The office of the honourable Attorney General of the Federation has reviewed the pending criminal charges against the duo of Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) and Omoyele
“Whilst the Federal High Court has exercised its discretion in granting bail to the Defendants in respect of the charges against them, I am also not unmindful of the right of the Complainant/Prosecution to appeal or further challenge the grant of bail by the court having regards to extant legal provisions, particularly Section 169 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015.
“However, my office has chosen to comply with the court orders while considering the pursuit of its rights of appeal and/or review of the order relating to the bail as granted or varied by the courts.
